Sri Lankan Lunu Miris (Chili and Onion Sambol)

Yum
I have a secret... one of my favorite dishes in the world is this simple little sambol called lunu miris.  It can literally make my mouth water.  All I need is some bread, butter and a bowl of this sambol and I'm a happy girl.  My mother says that I would eat this at the tender age of two... so you can see that I have loved SPICY food for a very long time.  This sambol may seem curious to some of you... onions, chili, salt, lime juice and maldive fish.. how can that be tasty?  Well... it simply is. Are you wondering about the maldive fish? It is a  dried/cured fish that is used throughout  Sri Lankan dishes.  If you are a Sri Lankan, this sambol may be close to your heart.  We traditionally eat this with  Kiri Bath (Coconut Milk Rice) , Hoppers (appa), Roti-flat bread and much, much more.


Ingredients:
1 large onion cut finely by hand (do not use food processor)
2 Tbs red chili powder (or to taste)
1 Tbs red chili flakes 
1 Tbs coarsely ground Maldive Fish (optional)
salt to taste
1-2 tsp lime juice (or to taste)  - lemon juice can be substituted.

Note:  You can use red, yellow or white onion in this dish. 

Directions:
Finely dice onion. Add all ingredients and use a mortar and pestle to smash the ingredients down.  If you do not have a mortar and pestle handy, put in a shatter proof bowl and gently pound with a heavy bottom bottle.  Pounding the ingredients helps develop the flavor so this is a must. Taste for salt and lime juice and adjust as needed.  Serve with bread and butter or with a variety of Sri Lankan dishes.   Enjoy.

  12. As we are aware of the fact already that commercial inspection is very different from residential inspection hence the expertise needed for this to be done are different as well. Commercial inspector is someone who has the necessary experience needed for a commercial inspection which needs certifications and education required by the state along with a portfolio that states that they have done it before and the customers were happy and satisfied with the outcome of the inspection. As neglected as this perspective can be because there is more work when you are just a home inspector, being a commercial building inspector can be pretty rewarding as well because commercial buildings obviously cover more area hence the money will be good and as commercial building inspections are covered by companies, everything will be done more professionally along with the less hassle of having to involve in negotiations. All in all, commercial inspection can be pretty rewarding if a real estate inspector gets a good grip over it.

While there are a ton of residential inspectors present around us always luring us to get a home inspection done from them and many home inspection companies are offering numerous perks if we get a home inspection done from them, when it comes to a commercial inspection, the list narrows down to a limited number and the reason behind this is that commercial property inspection is something on a bigger level and it requires a lot of expertise in order to get it right. When we search with words like commercial property inspection near me while residing in Atlanta, we may get a handsome amount of commercial inspectors on the search results but we should know what to look for before taking any decision.

  14. Commercial property inspection is a term which is used when the help of a real estate inspector is needed on a bigger level. It is not just about a house anymore. In order to get done with this process, experience and skill is needed because we are never sure what will be in the box for us because in a place like Atlanta, commercial properties can be of any size and it is not possible for a regular home inspector to bluff on this level that he can satisfy the clients completely. Commercial property inspectors are experts who know exactly what they are dealing with. They are aware that anything can be present on the commercial property and it can be of any size so they need to be prepared prior to the inspection day and they should know how they are going to satisfy the client who is looking for their help regarding their commercial property.

The fact that wherever you are going to spend the maximum of your time should be healthy for you. While we take care of the cleanliness of the space we are working in, taking care of the air quality around us is important as well.

  22. As much as home inspections are important,commercial property inspection also holds a vast importance as offices are considered to be the second place where people spend most of the time in a day. It is very important to get the place inspected thoroughly as EPA reported around 21000 deaths annually due to radon exposure which causes lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon inspection cost is nothing as compared to the price you will have to pay when prolonged radon exposure will result in causing major health issues. Radon is a colorless odorless gas present in the air all around us in trace amounts but it becomes a hazard when it gets entrapped inside the house and the residents of the house are exposed to it. The safe levels of radon as suggested by EPA is 4pCi/l and the amount more than it is alarming and you need to install a radon mitigation system at your commercial property as soon as possible.
