Having given the recipe for suttu, it is time now to post sambol which is the perfect combination for the previously mentioned suttu. Sambol is a Srilankan side dish prepared with coconut. Some would add dry fish to this dish even though I prefer a vegetarian one.
Basic info about the recipe

Mulaku Varutha Puli

After a dish from Karnataka, how about a traditional dish from Kerala? Yes, it is from proper Palakkad. Today, I am trying to reproduce the dish the way my mother used to make. It is a 5 minute curry with very little ingredients and tastes good with rice. It is almost like rasam with a little less effort.

Neer Dosa

This is the simplest of all dosas. Neer dosa means water dosa. It is more famous in Karnataka. The reason why it is the simplest is because it can be easily made with rice and requires no fermentation.
