How to make Avial / Aviyal

  1. Clean and cut all the vegetables. The vegetables should be about 1 1/4 inch long and about half an inch in thickness.
  2. In a pan or earthen pot, take the vegetables that take longer time to cook like Yam. Pour in little water. Place it on the heat.
  3. After few minutes, add remaining vegetables except brinjal and drumsticks. Add salt and 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder. Cover the lid and toss the pan to mix everything well. Let it cook.
  4. Once the veggies are half cooked, add the drumsticks and brinjal and toss it again to mix. If using raw mangoes, it should go in now. Continue cooking for another couple of minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, grind the ingredients 2-4 with 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder. Drop the ground coconut and curry leaves into the cooked vegetables and stir it gently without breaking up the veggie pieces.
  6. Cover and let it cook for just 1 minute. Turn off the heat and pour in coconut oil. Do not stir now if you would be adding yogurt.
  7. If you would be using the yogurt, let the veggies cool down a bit before adding it, else the yogurt would break. Give it a stir gently.
My Tip: Never add all the vegetables together. You should always add the vegetables which take longer to cook first, followed by others. If adding yogurt, add it only after the veggies have cooled down , else the yogurt would break.
