Knol Khol Sambar Recipe | Kohlrabi Sambar recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Knol Khol sambar is South Indian sambar made with Kohlrabi, lentils and different spices. We make sambar using different vegetables. Knol khol is one of the ignored vegetables and I have heard many people saying they don’t cook knol khol. It belongs to cabbage family and rich source of Vitamin C.
