One of the national dishes of Sri Lanka, Kottu is a favourite among all age groups. Ridge gourd is shortly fried in a mix of spices to bring out its intense flavour. These are then combined with pulpy tomato and coconut cream (made with MAGGI® coconut milk powder) for an unmatched taste. Each kottu is prepared individually on a hot griddle.
