Rich Spice Culture Of Sri Lanka
Ceylon Spices were very nearly an aphrodisiac for The Portuguese, Dutch and British. History records that The Portuguese held a stronghold, over the spice trade of then Ceylon. The tradition of considering Ceylon Spices like a wealth of Gold was followed by The Dutch too. Ceylon Spices traded throughout history including cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, cumin, turmeric, lemongrass, nutmeg and mace, curry leaves, ginger and pepper. After gaining independence in 1948, and being named Sri Lanka, the country is still considered the heaven of all spices.
