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.
