Oh my God! Padhu, you are a big saver! First time my inlaws visiting my home tomorrow. Nice suggestions and variety of recipes you have! Thank u so much and a big hug to you 🙂
Very useful… Thanks
One more suggestion here, the veggies could be boiled along with the paste and after they cool down, yogurt/ curd could be added to the portion required for immediate serving. This way Avial could be carried over to next day. Also, curdling could be avoided with this method.
Thank you for the recipe. It was very useful!

Can I add amchur powder while cooking if the curd is not sour? @padhusankar??
No, do not add amchur powder. Just a day old curd will do.
Hi padhu, ur blog is my recipe book. I refer your blog for every recipe south Indian or north Indian. I really like your lunch box ideas also. Thanks for your wonderful recipes
Hi padhus, I refer your website from d time I started cooking. I love them…. thank you
Hi, I could see most of the time people saying don't cook long after adding the curd. Infact in our families we do cook Morkuzhambu and avial for a long time after adding curd or buttermilk. We never had curdling issues. And this will last for next day without even refrigerating.
Hi Padhu Sankar

I'm going to try this recipe tomorrow, which curry would go along with avial??
Avial is a side dish. You can pair it with kara kulambu or vathal kulambu for lunch. For breakfast you can pair it with adai.
First time im trying tis recipe woow my hubby kept finger in his nose ha ha ha thank you
Can you recommend an accompaniment to Avail? I was planning on serving it with red rice.
Any Kulambu will go well with avial and rice.
The dish came awesome
