Chicken Blown Up By Landmine!
A:The Tigers shot it and curried it!
Tigers cook up a tasty 'landmine' KILINOCHCHI, (Reuters) - The house special in the trendiest restaurant in rebel-held Kilinochchi is a chicken dish called a 'landmine'. The dish with the explosive taste is made at a new restaurant that could compete with the best in Colombo, but is in the dusty town of Kilinochchi.
The "Seran Suvaigam" diner is a result of a 15-month truce and peace process that has given hope for a permanent end to the island's 20-year ethnic war and has led to some businesses springing up, despite complaints aid is coming too slowly.
The restaurant was set up by the rebels themselves with a loan from their Tamil Eelam Bank, to cater to affluent Tamils and the odd tourist who shows up in the north. "I'm shocked. I did not expect to find such a place here," said Shervana Raghavan, from India, after a tasty lunch in the restaurant's air-conditioned dining room.
The danger of landmines, with an estimated two million spread across the countryside, is behind the tongue-in-cheek nickname for the chicken pancake roll, called a midhi veddi -- landmine in the Tamil language. "It has chicken and egg inside. No beef or mutton," said Nagarajah with a smile. Susi, an 18-year old waitress, said she had trained for four months in "catering technology" and wanted to learn Sinhalese and English. 3rd June 2003
