Avial is a staple dish during Kerala Sadyas…A sadya without avial isnt a sadya! Avial is a very simple dish,extremely easy to make.When I made Avial for the first time I remember..I was surprised.I expected Avial to be a complex and a difficult to make kind of dish.But when I made it..it was soo simple even when I was a beginner in the world of cooking :) Avial is a really nutritious dish…you can make it with any kind of vegetable..no hard and fast rules regarding this..And I greatly suggest that you use coconut oil..It brings out the flavours to a great extent!!…and with addition of yoghurt ,it provides the exact tangy taste so that you can relish it with Rice. 141 more words

Avial or Aviyal (Mixed Vegetable Stew with Coconut, Cumin, and Yogurt)

I simply love Aviyal (also spelt as Avial). Not only is it simple to make but has the goodness of oh-so-many-vegetables flavoured with a coconut-cumin-green chilli paste and incorporating a touch of sourness from yoghurt or curd. 257 more words
