ash gourd sambar recipeash gourd sambar recipe | kumblakai koddel or sambar recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. basically a simple sambar version prepared from the diced or cubed ash gourd which is typically served with rice for lunch or dinner. in this version of kumblakai koddel no ground coconut masala is used and hence it is also known as bolu huli or kumblakai bol koddel recipe.

while i am huge fan of bol koddel or no coconut sambar recipes, my husband just loved the freshly grounded coconut sambar recipe. hence i usually prepare the varieties of coconut sambar and avoid bolu huli. however once in while i prepare this simple no coconut sambar and which is typically quick and easy compared to former. in other words, the ash gourd sambar is prepared by just boiling it in tamarind juice till it softens to which cooked mashed dal and sambar powder is added later.

furthermore, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect ash gourd sambar recipe. firstly, i have added jaggery to sambar for the sweet and spicy combination. it is completely optional and can be ignored safely. secondly, i have added home-made sambar powder in this recipe, alternatively you can use store bought sambar powder or even mtr sambar mix too. finally, you can extend the sambar by adding ground coconut masala to it. i typically add the sambar powder to fresh coconut and ground them to fine paste.
