Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Cut all the vegetables lengthwise of 1/2 inch thickness.

Step 2

Cook vegetables with water, salt and turmeric powder.
( Add salt only when veggies are cooked half way through)

Step 3

:- Add turmeric powder only when the water with vegetables starts boiling.

Step 4

Grind together the coconut, cumin seeds, curry leaves, small onions and a little curd or tamarind juice (as mango can be sour enough).

Step 5

:- You can add greenchillies too for grinding , then avoid adding them to vegetables.

Step 6

Once the vegetables are cooked, add the ground paste.

Step 7

Cook Aviyal till the raw coconut is cooked.

Step 8

:- Do not over cook the Aviyal, as the whole mix will dry up.

Step 9

Once Aviyal is cooked, add coconut oil and mix well.

Step 10

:- You can add tamarind instead of curd to make Kerala Aviyal.

Step 11

:- Serve Aviyal with rice or chapathi.

This is a good recipe, however I always use ripe tomato`s instead of curd or tamarind. It makes the dish more tasty and nutritious.

Great recipe! Thank you Sowmya:-) If you want to maximize the nutritional value of this dish I would suggest using yogurt towards the end along with the oil as over heating the yogurt will cause all the good bacteria to die.
