Popular as a traditional dessert, curd is a staple within Sri Lankan homes. It’s more prominent in the south of Sri Lanka, particularly in Tissamaharama. Curd is similar to Greek yogurt except it’s made from buffalo milk which has been curdled by adding in lemon or vinegar. Typically eaten with palm tree syrup or treacle, it’s a must-try dessert that’s both delicious and healthy. The best-tasting curd is typically found within Hambantota district, where local farmers specialize in this tradition. You can experience how it’s made by visiting a curd farm and tasting delicious and freshly-made curd.
