Avial / Mixed Vegetable curry

Avial is a mixed vegetable dish with coconut-yogurt base and scented with wonderful coconut oil!

  1. Mixed vegetables, cut into strips - 3-4 cups (unripe plantain, carrot, beans, drumsticks etc)
  2. Water - 1-2 cups
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Turmeric powder -  1/2tsp
  5. Green chilli - 2
  6. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  7. Coconut oil - 2 tbs
  8. Coconut shredded - 3 tbs
  9. Tamarind pulp soaked water - 1/4 cup(optional)
  10. Yogurt - 1/2  - 1cup

  1. Cook all vegetables in minimum water with salt and turmeric powder
  2. Coarsely grind coconut with cumin seeds, green chilli and yogurt
  3. Once the veggies are almost cooked, add tamarind water
  4. When the curry is almost dry and vegetables are cooked, add coconut mixture to it and mix well
  5. Cook for 2 more minutes and switch off the flame
  6. Add curry leaves and coconut oil on the curry and mix it. 
Note: it is ok to replace tamarind water with green unripe mango pieces.  Add mango with other veggies for cooking. 
If your yogurt very sour, then no need to add tamarind water
Increase the coconut mixture and grind it smoother to make avial with gravy
