Sackfuls of dried sprats sit in the open air at a wholesaler’s on Keyzer Street, in the Pettah Market. This tiny foraging fish is a traditional part of Sri Lankan cuisine, and is known locally as halmasso (“rice flies”, in Sinhalese) and “neththili” (in Tamil). Halmassa (the singular form) is also the name of a towm in the Sabaragamuwa Province. Colombo, October 2017.
