Sri Lankan Yellow rice is a very popular rice dish. Its mainly served for special occasions. The colour and aroma of this dish is unique to Sri Lanka. The coconut milk used in this gives this a very rich and creamier taste. The rice normally served with special curries and pickles.
You need to keep several things in mind when you do this dish. Do not cook the rice until it loose the shape. So always add less water to keep in looking nice on the plate. There are special Sri Lankan rice for this dish but if you are overseas you can use Basmati, or Ponni rice for this dish too.

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management.
My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner"
I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self.
As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
