Spicy green chilli-onion-tomato sambol(salad).

Spicy green chilli-onion-tomato sambol.

 

The easiest Sri Lankan salad you’ll ever make and a wonderful rice puller for your meals.

 

This is one of those dishes that come together without a recipe(I promise there is a reason to add such a simple dish).

 

All you need is your cutting board and a bowl to make this spicy Sri Lankan salad. 

 

Spicy Onion and tomato salad.

If there were two ingredients that I constantly use a lot, they have to be, onions and tomatoes.

 

I love the combination because it hits all the spot of my favorite taste buds.

 

Give me a toast slathered in butter topped with a seriously spicy onion and tomato salad anytime and I’ll be happy to call it a quick snack.

 

You can also use the salad as a side dish to your Sri Lankan meals.

 

It’s what brings all the different tastes together and adds a serious punch to the meal.

 

There’s nothing elaborate or difficult about this sambol, in fact, it will only take you less than 10 minutes to put it together.

 

The same sambol can do wonders as a good topping for burgers and grilled fish as well.

 

 

So if you love heat, tomatoes, onions then this sambol will be your favorite for the next couple of months.

 

Sri Lankan onions sambol Variations.

 

You would think that a simple salad of onions-green chillies and tomatoes can’t be served any other way, well let me surprise you with a few options and serving ideas.

 

1/ you can add a tablespoon or two of Maldive fish to completely change the taste of the sambol.

 

2/ add lime pickle(lunu dehi) to the sambol, mix thoroughly and see how good it tastes with rice and curry.

 

3/ 1/2 cup of coconut milk, mix with the sambol and it’s perfect for roti,

canned fish curry and breakfast or dinner is sorted.

In my grocery store, they do not have anything labeled “green chilies”...do you know the exact kind of pepper I could use? Would jalapeños work, or poblano? Thank you. This looks delicious and I’m excited to try it!

hello Mrs Remy, I don't see an issue in using either of the two peppers mentioned, as long as you can handle the spiciness of the chicken curry. what I refer to as green chillie here is more like the Thai bird's eye chillie. Hope you enjoy making the curry and let me know if you run into any issues, the quickest way to contact me would be to message me through the blog fb page. Regards, J
