Milk Toffee (kiri aluwa) – Sri Lanka

We had 2 Birthdays at work – one of them was a beautiful guy from Sri Lanka, the other from Mauritius.  The wife of the colleague from Sri Lanka got up at 2am to prepare a huge feast for us all at work – amazing lady – amazing cook! A few of us also contributed, my tiny offering was Milk Toffee.  Oh yum!! SO Delicious.  My photo does not show it so much but yes I did include the nuts!

It was a lovely feast, so much food – and I overate and felt crappy for the rest of the day haha, but had to try it all 😉 I am addicted to anything that has chilli in it I think ??

From this link: http://www.chilliworld.com/factfile/chilli-peppers-FAQ.asp

  • it says – are peppers addictive?
  • yes, peppers are addictive. peppers contain capsaicin, a natural chemical that sends a burning sensation from the nerve endings in the mouth to the brain. the body defends itself against this pain sensation by secreting endorphins, natural painkillers that cause a physical “rush” – a high that keeps us coming back for more. so indulge your pepper cravings, and rest assured that you will soon build a tolerance.

Also I had a little read of this one: 

HOW YOUR CHILLI ADDICTION COULD BE HELPING YOU LIVE LONGER

Here’s my toffee. It was actually more like a fudge, I got a bit scared it would be overcooked.  It was delicious anyway, and didn’t last long!
