To introduce myself: I’m Numi, and I grew up in Sri Lanka – a sunny little island nation southeast of the tip of India. My passion for cooking and food started from... More Info »
This Funzing Experience:
Ayubowan – in Sinhala, means "welcome, greetings and I wish you a long and prosperous life". Numi is on a mission to introduce you to the hidden culinary treasures of Sri Lanka. Come and discover the undiscovered cuisine of South Asia at her home-based cookery school in South London.

Sri Lankan cuisine blends a diverse array of fruits, vegetables, seafood, meats, spices and coconuts into a unique culinary experience, based on the island’s proximity to the Indian Ocean, and influences from South India, Persia, Malaya and the European colonial settlers.

Food is an integral part of Sri Lankan culture and is the primary means by which Sri Lankans interact socially. Food in this tradition is not about nutrients and calories – it’s about sharing, it’s about identity, it’s about hospitality. Food is Sri Lankans' common ground and is a universal means of expression.

Pittu - steamed cylinders of ground rice and coconut - is one of the heartier staples of Sri Lankan cuisine, and is likely to be something most London foodies haven't seen or experienced. Pittu (a.k.a. puttu) is fun, unique, eaten at any and all times of the day, and most importantly, deliciously yummy!

Numi's Pittu experience includes making the following dishes and lasts for 3.5 hours including prep time, interactive cooking time, Q&A time, and of course time to eat your scrumptious meal! You’ll also receive a printed recipe for each dish, and a starter pack of spices to take away with you.
  • Pittu - Steamed cylinders of ground rice and coconut
  • Elu Mas Currya – Lamb/mutton curry
  • Parippu – Red Lentils curry
  • Kooni Isso Mallung – Fine dried shrimp with coconut
This class is designed to add some uniquely different dishes to an experienced chef's repertoire, or just a fun experience for foodies looking for something fresh and 'off the beaten track'.
