Aviyal-Avial Recipe-Kerala Sadhya Series-5


Aviyal-Avial Recipe with Video Recipe. Aviyal is a must side dish in kerala sadhya. It is a thick mixture of different vegetables, coconut and curd, seasoned with coconut oil and curry leaves. The main flavor of this curry comes from the coconut oil used in this curry, so try to use coconut oil while preparing this curry for getting the actual flavor of this curry. For sourness I added curd in this curry, but you can use raw mango or tamarind water for getting sour taste. In this recipe I am using the vegetables which are using in authentic aviyal recipe, you can skip and add vegetables of your choice in this recipe, but try to avoid the vegetables that are very soft and pulpy. In a mixer just crush coconut and other ingredients like cumin, shallots and greenchillies. No need to add water while grinding it and make a fine paste of it. You won’t get the actual taste of this aviyal, if you grind it into a fine paste. It is very easy to prepare. Try this recipe for the upcoming onam sadhya and let me know how it tuned out for you.
