"An all-time favourite Sri Lankan side dish that goes well with most Sri Lankan meals such as rice and curry, string hoppers, hoppers, etc."

 

INGREDIENTS: 

2 cups scraped, fresh coconut or  desiccated coconut
2 small red onions or shallots, sliced
1-2 small green chillies, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1-2 tsp hot red chilli powder
1 tsp salt
1-2 tsp Maldive fish (optional)
1 medium lime  

DIRECTIONS: 

1. If using desiccated coconut, add 1/4 cup of warm water and mix well to moisten the desiccated coconut and set aside. 
 
2. Grind or chop all ingredients except coconut, in a grinder or chopper (a mortar and pestle can also be used).  

3. Once the ingredients are crushed and mixed thoroughly, add the coconut or the moistened desiccated coconut. Continue to grind until the coconut turns evenly red and all the ingredients are well mixed (this can also be done with fingers). 

4. Squeeze half a lime. Mix well, taste and adjust salt and lime. Serve with rice and curries (or other Sri Lankan meal).
