Kothamalli sambar | Coriander leaves sambar recipe, the recipe with step by step instructions. So if you are looking out for a sambar recipe without sambar powder and veggies, then this is a perfect recipe. A very simple and easy sambar recipe for this lockdown period. This coriander leaves sambar recipe is shared by a reader sometime back on my Instagram handle. Last week I got a huge bunch of coriander leaves from the market and I made chutney, thogaiyal, and coriander pulao too. Suddenly thought of this Kothamalli sambar and tried it today. It turned out so flavourful and we enjoyed with Ven Pongal.

Usually, we add homemade sambar powder to make sambar. We also add veggies like murungakkai, small onion, ladies finger, capsicum, radish, and pumpkin to make sambar. But this one is a very simple one without sambar powder and vegetables. Usually, we don’t add tomatoes in sambar, except the ones we make for tiffin sambar. This Kothamalli sambar | Coriander leaves sambar recipe tasted nice with a nice flavour of kothamalli leaves.
