Alasande hudi haki koddel, long beans sambar recipe

Alasande hudi haki koddel or long beans gravy recipe explained with step by step picture. Alasande hudi haki koddel or kodlu is a no-coconut gravy recipe goes very well with rice. This is a very simple, spicy and tasty recipe prepared using long beans, tamarind, salt, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, rice and red chilies.

I like alasande or long beans. And whenever I buy long beans, I prepare either kayirasa or palya or this sambar. This is a very simple gravy recipe as it is prepared without coconut and without dal. I learnt this recipe from my Mother-in-law. She loves alasande or long beans and she grows them in her backyard. Coconut is very dominant ingredient in Udupi-Mangaluru cuisine but same time there are many simple recipes without coconut like bolu huli or bol koddel and badanekayi or brinjal palya.

Alasande or long beans sambar is mainly served as an accompaniment with hot steaming rice. And I have not tatsed this with roti or chapathi.
