I thought of writing a poem about 'POL SAMBOL' , a Sri Lankan dish just for fun. It's easy to make, only thing is that I didn't make it this time as my younger friend made it. I only took pictures and helped to scrape the coconut at the Sunday school teachers' outing -17th October 2013 :)
This is a poem about a prepared Sri Lankan traditional dish
Simple and easy to make, so give it a try if you wish
Spicy and tastier according to your choice
Scrape the fresh white flesh of the coconut seed which is nice.
Two onions and garlic finely sliced with grated maldive fish
Add some pepper, salt and chili powder to the mix
Stir by your washed hand with coconut meat
Add some lime juice to enhance the flavor of it.
Normally we eat with rice, string-hoppers and bread
Also so many eat dried or fresh coconut flesh
Some squeeze it to use coconut milk for curries and savories
While others use coconut flour in bakeries.
