Mochai Sambar recipe - Field beans dal recipe - side dish for idli, dosa and Iddiyappam, Pulka

I had some Mochai left over after mochai sagu. I wanted to do some simple dal for Iddiyappam. I had some left over which I used the next day for dosa. It tasted good with both. This is quite simple to make. If you are making it for rice then increase the green chilies. I have used shallots but you can use red onions too. I didn't add Tamarind instead I had used lemon juice. You can try with tamarind too. Addition of coconut milk gave a nice flavour to the sambar so don't miss it. Perfect way to end mochai season.
