Gotu kola is the Sri Lankan version of Middle Eastern tabouli, and is a refreshing accompaniment to curries. I love fresh salad, but Sri Lankans don’t eat salads that often. When I discovered gotu kola I ate it almost every day. If you are unable to get gotu kola, substitute it with flat-leaf parsley. The fresh coconut, sprats (dried baby fish) and lime juice give this salad a typical Sri Lankan flavour.
