if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”

Pol Sambal or Coconut Sambal

An accompaniment to rice or stringhoppers.  Pol Sambal is made from a mixture of coconut, onion, dried fish pieces, dried chillies, salt and lemon.  If you omit the Coconut you have Lunu Miris which is like a chilli paste.  Lunu Miris is often eaten with kiribath which is  a mixture of overcooked rice and coconut milk moulded together.
