Basale sambar or basale soppu huli recipe explained with step by step pictures. Basale sambar is prepared using malabar spinach, lentils, coconut and fresh ground masala. This is a very tasty sambar recipe prepared using basale soppu or malabar spinach leaves. In Karnataka sambar is called by different names like "Huli" or "Huli-saaru" in malnad region, "Koddel" or "Huli" in mangalore and udupi region, "saaru" or "sambar" in rest of the places.
Basale soppu or malabar spinach is very good for health. These leaves are very common across Karavali (Udupi-Mangaluru) and Malnad region of Karnataka. And this recipe is very tasty and is signature dish of my Mother-in-law. I have added black eyed beans (or lobia) in this recipe, which enhances the taste and makes the sambar more yummy. You can also replace it with roasted horse gram. And if you can't get these leaves, don't worry just replace it with palak leaves. You can find palak sambar recipe here.
