This is a lovely dish, great for any meat or vegetable curries accompanied with rice and also well suited to Western beef dishes. Or serve in a sandwich or a roti wrap with chicken.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 large tomatoes
1 lime or lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon green chilli, chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon maldive fish flakes, (optional)

Method

  1. Cut tomatoes in half, then slice thinly. Set aside.
  2. Soak all ingredients except tomatoes in lime juice for half an hour. This takes the raw flavour out of the onion and gives the dish a pickled flavour.
  3. When it is time to serve, add the tomatoes, toss through and serve in a beautiful glass bowl.
