You can even mix this with rice and enjoy with papad and pickle. Poricha kuzhambhu can be made with any veggies likes chow chow,beans and even with mixed veggies too.

Goes well with Thengaai thuvaiyal or pudhinaa thuvaiyal or kothamalli thuvaiyal mixed with rice and this as side dish.Even tastes good with simple paruppu saadham with ghee and this kootu combo.Either Lemon rasam or jeera rasam is divine when Poritcha kootu is made

Can we try it with channa dal or toor dal?

You can try with toor dal. channa dal will not give the consistency
