COCONUT SAMBOL - SRI LANKAN


INGREDIENTS:

1 fresh coconut or shredded shop bought

1 small onion sliced

1 small onion diced

garlic and chilies to your taste (this dish tastes delicious when it's spicy)

1 -2 tsp red chili powder

1-2 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 lime

1 tbsp oil

1 tsp musturd seeds

8-10 curry leaves

METHOD:

  1. Scrape the coconuts ( I am using a coconut shredder from Sri Lanka in the video)

  2. If using shop bought that is also fine, place coconut in a bowl and add diced onion, chili powder, salt, black pepper, squeeze the lime juice and mix altogether.

  3. In a pan heat the oil, add mustard seeds and wait for them to pop, then add curry leaves, sliced onions, garlic, chilies, saute for a few minutes and then add all the coconut. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
