Aviyal / Avial recipe tamil nadu version – Mixed vegetables, cooked in coconut based gravy and mixed with yoghurt/ curd and flavored with coconut oil and curry leaves.
I rarely make aviyal, and there are two reasons for that…One is mostly because of the veggies,the next reason is I forget 😉 But I love the flavor of the dish! Mostly I make this as an accompaniment for rice along with vatral kuzhambu or kara kuzhambu or puli kuzhambu. I have never made this with Adai,which is the most famous combo! But I donno , we are not much fascinated about that combination. Any ways this recipe I simply followed from the cookbook my mom gave me. Came out nice!
Vj and me both of us love aviyal in a way,for both of us,the texture of the veggies is very important,we don’t like the veggies getting mashed,and we love our any kootu with the veggis not mashed too much,especially Vj enjoys the texture very much along with the taste 🙂 So here’s the recipe for the aviyal I made, and I am disclaiming this may not be the authentic aviyal recipe from Kerala… But the tamil version that we make at home. I assure you a great flavorful recipe 🙂
One more veggie I din’t add was ash gourd since I dint had…and its one of the considered veggie for aviyal.
Serve as accompaniment for rice or Adai.
