This is very good dish to serve with Idly / Dosai. We can prepare this very quickly and hence the name Avasara sambar (Quick Sambar) (Kadalai Mavu Sambar). Sometimes, making idli sambar will take sometime as we need to cook the thoor dal first. This is an instant sambar which goes well with Idli / Dosa / Pongal.
