The koha (koel bird) has begun heralding the arrival of Avurudu season, marking the astrological transition of the sun from the zodiacal position of Mina (Pisces) to Mesha (Aries), signifying the end of the old year and the start of a new one.
What is Avurudu without rasakavili (sweetmeats), without the traditional spread that makes the season complete? To share the joy of the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, The Kingsbury Colombo presents seasonal indulgences in the guise of the ‘Avurudu Kaema Mesaya’ and the ‘Avurudu Rasa Kevili Wattiya’. These delectable treats will be arranged in a ‘pan wattiya’ – a box made out of woven palmyrah leaves, and available via The Kingsbury Indulgence platform.
Enjoy a range of Avurudu favourites like konda kevum, mung kevum, narang kevum, athirasa, pani walalu, aasmi, aluwa and welithalapa when you order The Kingsbury Avurudu Rasa Kevili Wattiya. That’s not all, the Rasa Kevili Wattiya includes all-time favourites like kokis, milk toffees, butter cake, muscat and ulundu wade, too.
With the ‘Avurudu Kaema Mesaya,’ The Kingsbury Indulgence brings the auspicious meal right to your doorstep, so that you can celebrate Avurudu in the convenience, comfort and safety of your home.
Along with the ever-popular kiribath, to the not-so-common imbul kiribath (kiribath stuffed with pol pani), fish ambul thiyal, chicken red curry, seeni sambol, and katta sambol, the Avurudu Kaema mesaya includes the Avurudu rasa kevili wattiya as well.
At Churros, the bibikkan cake, chocolate chip betel leaf cake, Avurudu celebrations cake and Avurudu festivities cakes (ribbon cakes) are on offer. These seasonal cakes are also available on The Kingsbury Indulgence platform.
The Kingsbury Colombo adheres to stringent safety protocols, having received the ‘Safe and Secure Tourism’ Compliance Certificate from the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority in 2020.
