Gotukola Sambolaya

gotu kola sambolaya


1 bunch of gotukola (from any Asian shop)
50g small red onion( chopped)
2 green chilli (chopped)
2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons Maldives fish powder
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons grated coconut  (if using desiccated coconut, mix with 2 tablespoons of cold water, put in the microwave for 3 minutes and let it cool before using)


  • Wash and finely chop the gotukola
  • Mix all the ingredients together and season

This is a very healthy and nutritious dish, the most famous green salad in Sri Lanka and my favourite one! Prepare at the last minute to stop the leaves discolouring. Serve with rice and curry – enjoy!
