I've never actually tried Sri Lankan cuisine.

I'll tell you what is good though, Nepalese.
It's simply the greatest food I've ever had. Hot and spicy, yet full of flavour, and with milder dishes to help tone the really hot ones down.

My bolding

Yes Nepalese food is damned good.
I have worked with the Gurkhas on several occaisions and it was always a treat to get an invite to their parties. Good food and company (not to mention plenty of ale {Oops! Just mentioned it.}).

They had a particularly nice potato dish. Cool (ish) as you chewed and swallowed it, then seemed to get hotter afterwards.

Anybody have any suggestions for very cheap, yet edible, meals?  

Rice and ginger? Boil some rice with a pinch of turmeric to give it a lovely yellow colour.
Then dry the rice and fry it with gratings of fresh root ginger.
Very tasty. Very cheap. You could always add the odd random ingredient to experiment for variety.

Dunno about having a dinner consisting of nothing but rice.

I mean, it'd seem a bit, uh, incomplete without SOME attempt at vegetables or protein. Seems like kind of a kwashiorkor diet.

Sorry. I've always wanted to use the word 'kwashiorkor'.
