Sri Lankan Pol Sambol

Sambol is a popular topping and side dish in Sri Lanka. There are two basic varieties – sweet and savoury (pol sambol). Here I’ve made the spicy version and will soon follow with the sweet one. Pol Sambol is best served with idiyappam.

Its also super easy to whip up…

Pol Sambol

1/2 cup Grated Unsweetened Coconut
1-2 tsp Lemon Juice
1 Onion, cut fine
1-2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1/2 tbsp Cilantro, chopped

Mix all the ingredients together. Serve as a side with idiyappam. Feel free to make it as spicy as you’d like. And you can play around with the lemon juice as well.
