Pol Sambol

Introduction

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.

An interesting introduction to your recipe and well illustrated. I've never seen the scraper you pictured - what an improvement on the metal claws that take so much energy!
