Avial’s one of my favorite dishes in the Kerala Sadya. These are the common vegetables used in Avial: Potato, raw banana, yam, carrot, drum stick, beans, long beans, raw mango, cucumber, zucchini. Never miss raw mango in avial 🙂 It enhances the dish’s flavor to a different level altogether.

    Preparation
  1. Peel/Remove the skin of the vegetables: potato, carrot, yam and raw mango. Scrape the raw banana skin a bit. Same with drum sticks. You don't have to remove the whole skin of banana and drumsticks. Wash and clean the vegetables and slice them thin and 2-inch long pieces.

  4. Have ingredients listed under the coconut mix - grated coconut, shallots, green chilli, garlic, jeera and salt in a chopper/mixer. Just pulse it so that it gets crushed. Don't grind it into a smooth paste. It's supposed to have a coarse texture.

  5. Add the coconut mix to the cooked vegetables and mix well. Cook it for around 5- 10 minutes until it boils and have a thick consistency.
