Kerala Style Aviyal Recipe-Kerala Avial Recipe

Aviyal (avial) is a delicious preparation made with mixed vegetables, curd, coconut and seasoned with coconut oil and curry leaves. It occupies an important place in Kerala cuisine and is a must for Onam Sadya. Today let us learn how to make Aviyal (avial) Kerala style using this easy Aviyal recipe.

Kerala Aviyal recipe-AviyalHow to prepare Kerala Style Aviyal
Serves -(3-4)

Ingredients needed

Ash gourd -3/4 cup
Cucumber - 1 cup
Carrot -1
Drumstick -1
Beans -6-7
Potato -1
Raw plantain -1
Raw Mango - few pieces (5-6 medium size pieces)
Elephant foot yam -100 grams
Curd -2 tbsp

For the grinding

Grated coconut - 1 cup
Cumin seeds /Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Green chilli -3

For the seasoning

Coconut oil - 2-3 tsp
Curry leaves - few

Preparation

Peel the skin and cut all the vegetables into 2 inch long piece.

Coarsely grind grated coconut, green chillies and cumin seeds. Keep it aside.

Method

Since each vegetable needs different time for cooking, I cooked cucumber, plantain and ash gourd together in a pan separately adding salt needed for that alone. When it is half cooked, add chopped raw mangoes.

Pressure cook the rest of the vegetables adding salt and turmeric powder for 2 whistles.You can cook in open pan also.The vegetables should be soft but not mushy. (use very less water and cook)

Add the grounded coconut paste and cook for a few minutes. Remove from flame.

Add curd and mix well. Check for salt. Season with coconut oil and curry leaves.

It is a fantastic side dish for rice and I love it with adai also.

Note - You can skip curd, if you are adding raw mangoes or add according to the sourness you want. Since I love curd, I have added very less quantity in-spite of adding raw mangoes.
