Sri Lanka's cuisine mainly consists of boiled or steamed rice served with curry or “rice and curry” as it is commonly referred to. A well-known rice dish served at breakfast is kiribath, meaning "milk rice." Curries in Sri Lanka are not just limited to meat or fish-based dishes - there are also a vast range of vegetable and even fruit curries. A typical Sri Lankan meal consists of a "main curry" (fish or meat), as well as several other curries of vegetable, lentils and potato. Side-dishes include pickles, chutneys and "sambols" which can sometimes be fiery hot. The most popular of these is the coconut sambol, made of ground coconut mixed with chillies, Maldive fish, lime juice and salt. This is minced into a fluffy combination and eaten with rice, as it gives zest to the meal and is believed to increase appetite. Sambol is also an excellent accompaniment for hoppers, string hoppers, roti or milk rice. Some people enjoy eating red rice with sambol for breakfast.

Sri Lankans also eat mallung - chopped leaves mixed red onions and sometimes with grated coconut. Coconut milk is found in most Sri Lankan dishes, giving the cuisine its unique flavor and adding body to the gravy.

Sri Lanka has long been renowned for its spices. In the 15th and 16th centuries, traders from all over the world who came to Sri Lanka also brought their native cuisine to the island, resulting in a rich diversity of cooking styles and techniques. Lamprais - rice boiled in stock with a special curry, accompanied by "frikkadels" (meatballs), all of which is then wrapped in a banana leaf and baked - is a Dutch-influenced Sri Lankan dish. Dutch and Portuguese sweets also continue to be popular. British influences include roast beef and roast chicken.
