Avial recipe, Kerala Aviyal recipe

Aviyal | Avial is a popular dish in Tamilnadu and Kerala. Avial is a must one in the Onam sadhya menu. I have already posted the avial which we make at home. I wanted to learn about the Kerala Aviyal and finally got the perfect recipe from my mami's sister Viji. As i mentioned in my kurukku kalan post, she is very sweet and answered all my silly doubts with smile. We all loved this Kerala style aviyal. I just enjoyed with plain rice and papad. Try out this Kerala style Aviyal and let me know how it turned out. Check out my collection of Onam sadhya recipes.

Avial- recipe
Notes:
  1. Do not use sour curd, use fresh thick curds.
  2. My mom always add curd to aviyal just before serving, so that you can avoid getting the sour taste.
  3. Do not grind the coconut mixture into a fine paste. Just pulse it twice and add.
  4. You can add raw mango too, if adding skip the yogurt.
