In Sri Lanka, the coconut is, in a sense, a source of life. Not only it is the main ingredient in most Sri Lankan dishes, but it also plays a major role in many non culinary parts of every day life. Without the coconut, things in Sri Lanka would be very different. We spent the day with a family of 8 on their modest coconut plantation outside of Negombo, where they showed us all this fruit (nut?.. seed?..) has to offer.
