ZWT6 Sri Lanka/South India. Seeni sambol is slightly sweet because of the caramelized onions and the added jaggery. The amount of chili powder can be adjusted to make it as spicy as you want. The onions can be deep fried and vinegar used in place of the tamarind. It is a perfect side for rice, idli,dosai or chapathi. South Indian or more specifically Tamil Nadu cuisine and SriLankan/Tamilian cuisine. Though the spices and the ingredients used are more or less the same the resulting dishes taste very different.
