About Me

I am Mona and I was born and raised in Arugam Bay. I live in the Tamil-Sinhalese village, together with my husband Unga and my two daughters Dilki and Waruni.


My father used to be a chef, and it has always been my dream to give cooking classes one day. In 2018, my dream came true. I built a new kitchen at my house, and I now offer private cooking classes.

Food is my passion and natural ingredients are important to me. In my cooking classes, I only use local, natural and fresh ingredients. I will show you how to cook the best Sri Lankan rice and curry, and provide you with a unique and authentic experience. Learn how to make your own curry powder, to hand grate coconut into traditional sambol, to make coconut milk and to eat your delicious meal with your hand, just like we locals do.

If you have any questions or want to make a reservation, please contact me.

I am looking forward to hearing from you, Mona
