This week I want to feature some captures of Blue Pea
Flowers, also known as Butterfly pea. In Sri Lanka we call this flower as ‘Nil
Katarolu’.These flowers are common in Sri Lanka and there is also a white variety.

I’ve seen many recipes using
this flower including blue pea tea; however I am not familiar with any Sri
Lankan recipe.I found this as a natural food colouring to create the colour blue.
As far as I know, in Sri Lanka we use these flowers to beautify
home gardens or for any decorations.

    • Hi Dominique, my intentions are to comment to Amila but the system seems not to like me right now, so I hope you don't mind me tagging along with you, no to mention I also love flowers :).

      Amila these are some great pictures and that blue comes across be nice.

      Now you both have a wonderful rest of the week.
