Sri Lankan Dried Red Chilli Sambol/Lunu Miris Sambol

Sri Lankan Sambol is a spicy side dish similar to Kerala ‘Chammanthi’. This is served as an accompaniment with main meals like rice or breakfast items. This dish is very delicious and simple to make. There are many verities for this dish, among that coconut sambol and red chilli sambol are common. Here I am presenting Red Chilli Sambol or Lunu Miris Sambol (Lunu means onion and miris is chillies in Sinhala language).

Sri Lankan Sambol is a spicy side dish similar to Kerala ‘Chammanthi’. This is served as an accompaniment with main meals like rice or breakfast items. This dish is very delicious and simple to make. There are many verities for this dish, among that coconut sambol and red chilli sambol are common. Here I am presenting Red Chilli Sambol or Lunu Miris Sambol (Lunu means onion and miris is chillies in Sinhala language).

  • Dried Red Chilli flakes – 3 tbsp
  • Dried fish (Maldive fish (Tuna)/Prawns/Anchovies– 200 grams (I used small dried prawns. Traditionally sambol is made with maldive fish)
  • Shallots/Kunjulli sliced – 7-8 nos
  • Curry leaves – one sprig
  • Lime juice – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – as required
  1. Heat oil in a pan, add dried fish and fry till golden and crispy. Remove from the fire and keep aside. (If you are using Maldive fish, you can skip this step, because it is boiled, smoked and sun-dried)
  2. To the same pan (add oil if required) add shallots, curry leaves, red chilli flakes and fry for 2 minutes.
  3. Coarsely grind the above all ingredients & salt, by using a mortar and pestle or a mixer grinder.
  4. Finally add lime juice and mix well.
  5. Sambol is ready to be served.
