avial-recipe-aviyal
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 I assure you a great flavorful recipe :)

Aviyal recipe

Indian Lunch
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients

Mixed veggies(see procedure for details)  2 cups 
Curd  1/4 cup 
Curry leaves  1 sprig 
Coconut Oil  1 tsp 
Green chilli slit  2 nos. 
Salt  As needed 

To grind

Coconut 1/4 cup
Green chilli 1 or 2 nos.
Cumin seeds/jeera 3/4 tsp
Rice four 1/2 tsp

To temper

Coconut oil 1 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Mustard,optional 1 tsp

Method:

  1. I used the veggies drumstick,cluster beans,broad beans,beans,snake gourd,carrot,potato and plantain.Cut them into long strips kind of pieces
  2. I first boiled the veggies in purple font above first,along with curry leaves  and after those veggies are half done,then added rest of the other..I added plantain lastly as it takes less time to get cooked. You can pressure cook all the veggies together too for just two whistles with very little water.While the veggies get cooked, grind the coconut,green chillies and rice flour with jeera, little water, to grind coarsely.
  3. 1-avial-raks-kitchen
  4.  And add this mixture to the cooked veggies.2-avial-recipe
  5. Let it come to boil. Remove from fire. And add the well beaten curd.3-avial-recipe
  6. Mix in the curd and temper the aviyal with coconut oil and curry leaves.(mustard if desired). Mix raw coconut oil, 2 tsp for extra flavor!4-avial-recipe
Notes
  • Adding more plantain/ vazhakkai makes the avial dark in colour. 
  • You can use water washed out from rice (arisi mandi) for cooking veggies.
  • Add mango in avial towards end and skip curd for a vegan version of aviyal.

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. avial-recipe

  10. Yah even we two love the veggies to be crunchy and color to be maintained mostly, not to be mashed. Otherwise it spoils the taste of the whole dish.

    1. Sure you can use :)

    2. Still, 1/2 tsp of rice lour also you cant consume?!!:) In the whole recipe only 1/2 tsp and I am not sure how much avial you are going to eat in that, I feel its ok for 1/2 tsp rice flour. If you want to omit also fine, no problem, you can omit the rice flour.
