Raw Carrot Sambol

Had the house to myself this Sunday. Took the chance to cook with music blasting away the cobwebs. The food wasn’t as rocking as the music, with my first choice being a sedate Carrot Sambol, adapted from Chandra Dissanayake’s Ceylon Cookery, which takes minutes to make in a food processor.

What you will need
* 4 small carrots (12oz/340g)
* 1 small red onion
* 3-4 green chillies  
* 3/4 to 1 cup desiccated coconut
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 tsp pepper
* 1 tsp lime or lemon juice
What to do:
Peel carrots and onion. Roughly halve or quarter. Then put all ingredients into food processor. Process until finely mixed. (Note: Halving the salt, pepper and lime/lemon quantities brings out the sweeter flavour of the raw carrot.)
