Mint Sambol is a Sri Lankan recipe akin to Pachadis or Thogayals of South India. It takes mint leaves, onion, garlic and chilli and grinds them with sultanas and coconut for sweetness, and lime juice for tang. It is a great accompaniment to rice or any Indian or Sri Lankan spicy dish.
I have blended this to a smooth paste, but you can also grind it to a more chunky mixture. That is also very nice.
1 cup fresh mint leaves
1 small onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, sliced
0.66 cup shredded coconut
0.25 cups sultanas
1 green chilli
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Blend the ingredients for the sambol together. Add a little water if it is needed. Stir in some salt, black pepper and lime juice. Taste and adjust seasonings and lime as necessary.
