Katta Sambol

Katta Sambol or Lunu Miris is another favourite Srilankan Condiment for all things spicy chilli lovers….

Not for the faint hearted because this hits you right at the spot !!!!

The difference between Katta Sambol and Lunu Miris is the Maldive Fish. Lunu Miris in entirely vegan but Katta Sambol is for those who enjoy the umami flavour and want extra just like me !!!!

A Simple Srilankan Breakfast : Boiled Sweet Potatoes with Katta Sambol and Freshly Grated Coconut

Even though Katta Sambol pairs well with almost any kind of Srilankan Breakfast Meal like Hoppers,Mani Pittu,Pol Rotti,Boiled Yam and much more , from what I remember Katta Sambol is mostly served with Kiribath or Milk Rice during a humble beginning to something new like New Years Day or when moving into a new home,new business and anything new….

So here’s to the beginning of A Better Year!!! Have you made New Year Resolutions already ???
