Helapa is a traditional Sri Lankan sweet treat. It's prepared with a combination of kurakkan flour, rice flour, treacle, cardamom, and grated coconut. The ingredients are cooked together and mixed until they develop a doughy consistency. The mixture is then flattened on kanda leaves, which are folded and steamed until the dough firms up.Before serving, the leaves just need to be unwrapped and helapa can be eaten. It is recommended to serve this traditional dessert with a cup of Ceylon tea.
