Coconut Sambol


Being a ‘spicy’ food addict this version of a Sambol (hot spicy sauce) or as the Dutch would call it ‘Sambal’ was a devine surprise to me. At it everyday on my trip in Sri Lanka and had to get the recipe!

It well with just about anything; from my omelet or eggs in the morning to a relish with a cheese sandwich, a roast chicken or a curry of course.

There is something about adding spicy ingredients to your food… Makes you feel alive especially when you need that extra kick, wake-up call or rush:-)

Here is a list of what you need:

  • grated fresh (firm) coconut meat
  • 1 fresh green or red chili peper
  • pinch of salt
  • juice of 1 lime
  • thinly sliced medium sjalot
  • 1 tea spoon of chili powder
  • 1 tea spoon of chili flakes

Grate the coconut, slice the sjallot and mix in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients according to taste. I personally like it with alot of lime and chili. Be careful with the quantities, you can always add more later.

Once made promise you it will be finished in no time, otherwise you can keep it a couple of days in the fridge.
