SRILANKAN ALUWA (2 variations)


This is a traditional sweet of Srilanka ,one is

made with sugar,and another is made with

treacle ,jaggery syrup.

Few ingredients and can be made easily within

minutes.

Roasted rice flour is the main ingredient in this

sweet.It is difficult to give the measurements,

precise as it depends on how much the rice and

treacle / sugar syrup blend to the correct

consistency .

So to the first recipe variation with sugar.

set aside.

a consistency of a firm dough ( not dry)

Quickly transfer on to floured board (roasted

rice flour only). Sprinkle some on top and press

down with your hands, to flatten .
