AVIYAL - A rich variety of vegetables cooked in yoghurt. This is one of the popular dish in South India, especially in Kerala.It is a classic dish and nutritious. The taste of adding coconut oil  before serving  gives an unique flavor to this recipe. This goes well with rice and also with Adai - Lentils Dosa.

2 - 3 cups of Mixed vegetables (see the Note)
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp. of cumin seeds
1/4 tsp. of black peppercorns
2/3 cups of yoghurt 
A tsp. of coconut oil
A sprig of curry leaves
Salt
Preparation

Boil the vegetables with sufficient water.Cover and cook until they turn soft.


Grind the coconut , chillies, cumin seeds and peppercorns with little water to a smooth paste.


Add this paste to the cooked vegetables and bring it to boil , allow it to cook for 5 mins. in low flame to blend.


Beat the yoghurt with salt and pour it on the vegetables, allow this to cook for a couple of mins.Finally add the coconut oil and curry leaves , stir it gently.



Remove from the heat and serve it hot.

Aviyal(Avial) is ready to be served.......



Serve this Aviyal with rice and enjoy :)

Note:

Mixed Vegetables - Potatoes, Peas, Raw banana, Yam, Red pumpkin, Drumstick, Brinjal, Carrot and beans.

The consistency of the avial depends on the water your adding at the time of boiling.Before adding the coconut paste drain off the remaining water.

Don't skip coconut oil as it enhances the taste of this recipe.
