Vegetarian Chilli Sambal

Sambal or sambol, its just like our chutneys or side dishes which Srilankans used to have as side dishes for their roti, rice etc...Chilli sambal is one among those famous sambal..this sambal is usually prepared with red chillies and dry maldives fish..but i googled for vegetarian version of sambal and finally i have found this vegetarian version here .. Sinhalese peoples call this chilli sambal as Lunu Miris coz this dish is prepared simply with shallots and dry red chilly flakes..This sambal suits prefectly for rotis, with our usual breakfast dishes like idlies, dosas etc..Its quite spicy and hot, but i loved it with hot idlies...Obivously this sambal goes to AWED-Srilanka guest hosted by Siri, event started by DK....

1cup Small onions/Shallots
4tbsp Dry red chilly flakes
2tsp Lemon Juice

Peel the onions and chop roughly as small pieces... Take the dry red chilly flakes, lemon juice and salt along with chopped onions in a blender...Adjust the salt and add red chilly flakes if u need more spicy...Use freshly squeezed lemon juice to prepare this sambal...

Serve as side dish!
