small bunch of gotu kola, washed (alternatively use curly leaf parsley or curly kale)
1 large tomato, finely chopped
1 small green finger chilli, finely sliced
6 small red shallots, finely sliced
½ fresh coconut (alternatively use 200g/7oz fresh coconut flakes)
1 tbsp Maldive fish flakes (dried tuna flakes, also known as Maldive chips)
½ lime, juice only
table salt, to taste
Finely chop the gotu kola, including the stalks, and place in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, chilli and shallots and mix together.
Using a coconut scraper, scrape out the coconut flesh into a bowl. Add a couple of handfuls of coconut flesh to the bowl, along with the Maldive fish flakes, lime juice and a little salt. Mix well to combine, taste and add more salt if desired.
