We were returning from the Yala National Park and stopped near Tissamaharama to buy some curd from one of the many stalls in that area that sell it as their main product. The best curd in Sri Lanka is made there and transported around the island.

There are many places that sell buffalo curs along this road, prices are quite reasonable. Curd is very cooling this dry season, never miss this when I travel

Stop and relax. Enjoy some curd with honey, it's great. Even the kids loved it. It tastes a bit like turkish yoghurt.

Stopped on the way to Unawatuna at a roadside stall and bought I pot of curd and some honey for the family to share. Everyone loved it and quite safe to try - no one got sick after eating this. Nice quick snack.

For LKR 50 or 100, they serve a load of curd with treacle by the side of the road. This is 100% value for money, as one portion can serve 2-3 people. These are not restaurant types of arrangements but mere street boutique shops. Do not expect dining experience, as if you are visiting a up-market restaurant. Run mostly by... More

If you like curd/yoghurt and don't stop at one of the roadside stalls then you have denied yourself the satisfaction of tasting freshly made curd and sweet golden honey. For curd lovers it is a must on your bucket list!!

I would get local advice on where is the best place to get your sample. I would suggest to buy yours as early as possible in the day since it gets hot and the clay pots are usually sitting out in the sun. The honey was absolutely delicious. Dark and not overly sweet, it was the perfect compliment to the... More

Nothing like some real homemade curd, it's delicious and exactly the same as they serve in restaurants for dessert, just way more expensive. It's also great without the honey, just buy some bananas from one of the fruit stalls, slice it up on top and you have a healthy and nutritious breakfast or snack. Price is about 180-200 rupees and... More

If you visit Sri Lanka, the chance to eat fresh buffalo curd should be celebrated! This stuff is a lot like yogurt, but less gelatinous, maybe the consistency of sour cream, with a light, very slightly sour taste which is perfectly complemented by kithul, treacle or honey also sold at the curd stand. My husband and I first tried it... More
