This is one of my favorite dishes. If Gotu kola is not available, you can use Parsley.
3 cups Gotu kola cleaned 3 tbsp fresh grated coconut* 1 green chillie 3-4 red pearl onions (ratu lunu)** 1 tsp powdered Maldivian fish (optional) 1/2 lime Salt to taste
Shred the gotu-kola finely. Chop the green chillie and onions finely. Mix all the ingredients and add lime juice and salt to taste. Serve immediately. * If fresh coconut is not available, you can use desiccated unsweetened coconut. Add about 1 tbsp of water to it and microwave for few seconds before using. ** If red pearl onions are not available, use about a quarter of a regular onion.
