I like to start with a few tablespoons of rice, a teaspoon of ghee(if you can’t find ghee then use melted butter)and mix the parsley sambol with it and enjoy the simple flavors before adding any of the other curries.

Ingredients

A bunch(100-150g)of parsley leaves
1 cup of grated coconut(substitute with dessicated coconut. the scraped coconut should be used as needed)

1/2-1 teaspoon of red chilli flakes
2 tablespoons of lime juice
Salt to season

Method

Wash the Parsely well and let it drain any excess water until the herby leaves are almost dry.

Bunch the parsley together and chop the leaves, you can also chop a part of the stem close to the leaves.

Parsley leaves tend to have a slight bitterness but adding the grated coconut helps to neutralize it slightly. if you still taste the bitterness, add the rest of the scraped coconut(you can substitute with dessicated coconut).
