Lunumiris (or lunu miris) is a spicy Sri Lankan sambal paste served as a condiment. It consists of chili pepper and sea salt, usually ground with mortar and pestle.

A common derivative is katta sambal, which adds other ingredients that can include white or red onions, maldive fish and lime juice.

Lunumiris is mainly eaten in rural areas, whereas katta sambal is ubiquitous in Sri Lanka. It is not unusual for katta sambal to be called lunumiris, although this is not strictly correct.
