Avial Recipe

Posted on May 29th, 2009

Fresh coconut was sitting in the fridge for a long time. Wanted to finish it off! I raided the fridge and got few veggies (end of the week…reminds to me to do grocery shopping :mrgreen: ) Had all the necessary ingredients, so prepared avial :) Sharing the recipe with u all.




Vegetables (Beans, Carrot, Potato, Drumstick, Raw banana or plantain): 1 cup (Any/all of these cut in to medium size)
Curd / Yogurt: 1/2 cup
Coconut (grated): 1/2 cup
Cumin seeds: 2 tsps
Green chilies: 4-5
Curry leaves: few
Oil (Preferably coconut oil): 1 tsp

Preparation Method:

  • Cook the vegetables with little salt and keep them aside.
  • Grind coconut, cumin seeds and green chilies in a mixer.
  • Mix it with the cooked vegetables and heat in it a kadai (pan).
  • Allow it to cook for few mins.
  • Reduce the heat, add curd and little water and stir well.
  • Allow it to cook for 1-2 mins and then remove it from the stove top.
  • Add the curry leaves.
  • Heat coconut oil and mix it with the avial.
  • Tasty avial is ready :)

Share & Enjoy! -

    Isn’t avial normally yellow? This recipe missed out turmeric..that would’ve given it the traditional yellow colour and the mild manjal flavour.The creamy look gives it more of a pachadi or dessert appearance also.Rest looks good & keep up good efforts.

      Priya, Some add turmeric to avial and some do not. We Tanjore Maharastrians add turmeric to khadi/moorkuzhambu but do not add turmeric to Avial recipe. Its more of a personal preference :) Thanks for dropping by!
