Habala Pethi is the Sri Lankan name for Rice Flakes. This is also known as Poha or Aval. Habala Pethi is made by pressurising or beating the parboiled rice. Therefore it looks like flattened. In Sri Lanka, I have seen Habala Pethi made out of red rice which is high with nutrients value.
Not only as Porridge (Habala Pethi Kanda), there are few other ways we can use Habala Pethi in recipes. We can use as a snack mix with coconut & juggery, in pittu etc.I will share some recipes soon.

hi amy.. how are you? we in Malay called screwpine leaf as “pandan leaf” you call it rampe.
for us, when we slice this leaf very thinly and then add flowers and perfume to make a tye of potouri and we call it “bunga rampai” (rampai potpouri/flower) ..the name quite similar to your rampe.
never tried this rice flakes before, different too cos you use curry ..must be delicious
thanks a lot for your comment,it is very interesting when I found some similarity in different cultures.May be this word added to our language due to Malay community in Sri Lanka
wow………………….very nice. keep it up.
Very good recipe.
