About Aviyal Recipe
For those people who love South Indian fare, for those who love coconut oil and coconuts, this recipe is a MUST make! It's a subtle dish of assorted vegetables simmered in a creamy coconut sauce drizzled with coconut oil with the amazing taste and aroma of curry leaves. Now Aviyal is a dish for which I find a different recipe with different people.One of my friends who hails from Trivandrum adds Bitter Gourd(Karela) to the vegetable list.Some people add sour buttermilk and some add thick yogurt. As for the vegetables, the sky is the limit. Of course I would not recommend Bitter Gourd for people who do not like them. A friend of mine adds Brinjals which get too mashed up,but the family enjoys them ultimately.So its up to you what you prefer.
