At Machan Kitchen, located in Croydon and Farringdon, London, we bring you the authentic flavours of Sri Lankan seafood right to your plate.

Sri Lanka, with its abundant coastline, offers a diverse range of seafood that is as fresh as it gets. From succulent prawns to delectable crabs and an array of fish varieties, the ocean is a treasure trove of flavours. At Machan Kitchen, we take pride in sourcing the freshest seafood available, ensuring that every bite is a true taste of Sri Lanka’s coastal delights.

One of the most iconic seafood dishes in Sri Lanka is the beloved “Jaffna Crab Curry.” This dish, originating from the northern region of Jaffna, is a true symphony of flavours. The succulent crab is cooked in a fragrant blend of spices, including fenugreek, cinnamon, and cloves, along with aromatic curry leaves and freshly grated coconut. The result is a rich and hearty curry that perfectly balances the sweetness of the crab with the spiciness of the curry.

If you’re a fan of prawns, then Sri Lanka has a treat for you. The “Devilled Prawns” dish is a spicy and tangy delight that will leave you craving for more. Fresh prawns are marinated in a blend of fiery spices, including chilli, ginger, and garlic, before being stir-fried to perfection. The dish is finished off with a touch of lime juice, giving it a tantalizing tanginess that complements the heat of the spices. At Machan Kitchen, we prepare our Devilled King Prawns with the utmost care, ensuring that each bite is a burst of flavours that will transport you straight to the tropical shores of Sri Lanka.
