Kiri Kos Maaluwa(Jak-fruit cooked in coconut milk cream)-The all time favorite

Jak Tree is definitely a Jack-Pot to Sri Lanka- because it fills up hungry tummies big time. Last time I visited my grandma’s place in Giriulla, the lunch I had still makes the hungry beggar in my tummy craving for those few of a kind type of dishes, extremely yummy and well mind-satisfying.

The Kiri-Kos maaluwa aka Jak-fruit cooked in coconut milk cream just blew my mind away to infinity, so I thought I should share the recipe of it today for all the foodies out there who wish to try out the YUMMIEST chows around the world! If ever there was a competition to choose the most tongue craving-finger licking sort of dish around the world, I would unquestionably nominate this pretty little dish-‘Kiri Kos’ from Sri Lanka.
