"Bendekayi bol koddel" or "ladies finger sambar without coconut" is a gravy prepared using ladies finger and toor dal. This is a very simple sambar recipe prepared across the Karavali region of Karnataka. Bol or bolu translates to simple and koddel translates to sambar in tulu language. Tulu is a local language spoken in Karavali region of Karnataka. Bendekayi bol koddel aka bendekayi bolu huli is prepared without coconut and without any masala powders. Yet it is very tasty. Its a quick sambar recipe. So when you are in short of time, do prepare this.
Ladies finger has many health benefits. I have listed some of the health benefits of Ladies finger in my old post bendekayi palya(ladies finger stir fry) recipe. I have also posted bendekayi hasi kayirasa (Lady finger-urad dal gravy) and bendekayi kayirasa recipes. Those are the tasty gravy recipes from lady finger and the hasi kayirasa is my personal favorite.
Bendekayi bol koddel or bolu huli is mainly used as an accomapaniment with rice. Very minimum spices are used in this sambar but still its very tasty and it has a nice flavor. The asafoetida, coriander leaves and cumin seeds combination gives a divine taste and aroma to this sambar. You can also prepare bol koddel or bolu huli from other vegetables like brinjal, yellow-cucumber, beans and tindora.
