Pol Sambola (Coconut Sambol) – Spicy Coconut Garnish. An early mention of the planting coconuts is found in the Mahavamsa during the reign of Agrabodhi II. Coconuts are common in the Sri Lankan diet and the main source of dietary fat. Sri Lanka is the home to the coconut research institute of sri lanka. The coconut tree brings a lot of value to our country.
Coconut Sambol plays a major role in our daily meals. Very easy to prepare & very tasty. You can prepare this by using our common grinding stone or you can prepare in by hand. As an additional spicy flavor our house wives add Kochchi to this.
