Lunumiris (Sinhala:ලුණු මිරිස් [lunu-miris] some also refer it as "Katta Sambal" [Sinhala:කට්ට සම්බෝල [kaṭṭa sambōla]]) is a spicy Sri Lankan sambal paste served as a condiment. It consists of chili pepper, shallots, Maldive fish, sea salt, black pepper and lime juice, usually ground with a mortar and pestle or a grind stone. However shallots aren't used when making katta sambal, and shallots are used in lunu miris so lunu miris has a wetter texture than katta sambal.
This is a paste which is a little bit hot because of the chili powder added.
Lunumiris contains chili pepper, shallots, Maldive fish, sea salt, black pepper and a little bit of lime juice. This can be made vegetarian, without Maldive fish. This type is hot, but wet, and a little bit crispy because of shallots. This should be made with mortar and pestle, or grind stone. This can be made also with hands, but it doesn't give the real taste.
