Home / Recipes / Pol Sambol - Sri Lankan Coconut Sambol
If given a choice I would term Pol Sambol as a dish that defines Sri Lanka. Simple, rustic and basic yet bursting with delightful flavours. Pol means coconut and Sambol is a chutney or salsa like condiment that accompanies Sri Lankan rice, curries and flat breadsEach meal we had in Sri Lanka was accompanied by this delish Sambol and a salad. Sambol is a condiment made using some very minimum ingredients and is usually not cooked. The Pol Sambol recipe I share was served with hoppers, pol roti, curry and rice... practically everything. It is a dish a Sri Lankan can put together from the ingredients fetched from their back yards. It is extremely basic and yet its presence elevates the entire meal.
