This is a staple of Sri Lankan cooking which is delicious with rice, bread, salads. Worth doing if you have the time and want something different and a bit tasty. It is addictive.

Ingredients

  • Half Fresh Grated Coconut Don't use dessicated or sweetened. It won't work. I think you can get grated coconut frozen in some posh supermarkets.....
  • 1 Red Onion Small one, finely chopped
  • Thumb Ginger Grated
  • 1-2 Cloves Garlic Very Finely chopped
  • 1-2 Teaspoons Chilli Powder To taste. 1 will be mild
  • 1 Medium Tomato Finely chopped
  • Half Teaspoon Salt To taste
  • 1 Lime Squeezed , but if not available, tomato will be fine
  • 1 Tablespoon Sun Dried Tuna Flakes This is very optional as it is easy to find here, but difficult in the UK

Instructions

  1. Scrape/ grate the fresh coconut! There is special grater for that here....Julie might bring one back and share. If you have found some fresh frozen miss this step. Put the grated cocnut in a bowl
  2. Add all the other ingredients and mix well using your fingers to squeeze it all together.
  3. Eat.
