Helapa recipes in Sinhala

If you haven’t eaten helapa, you ain’t Sri Lankan. I have very fond memories of this traditional Sri Lankan delicacy. My heart skips several beats whenever I see my mother entering the house with an armful of kenda leaves because we know what’s coming – deliciously luscious helapa for afternoon tea! I would sit in the kitchen as she ground the kurakkan and the rice flour and caramelized the kithul treacle on the stove. We can be seen circling the steamer for the first helapa that came out, piping hot, white on kenda green. The whole house filled with that unique mix of fragrances of kurakkan, kenda leaves, cardamom and caramelized treacle and it was all we could do not to reach out and grab one while it was still raw.
