Avial | Aviyal | அவியல்  in Tamil is a traditional Tamil brahmin recipe. Aviyal | avial recipe with full video. Aviyal recipe updated with Video.
I learnt this from my mom who is an expert in making avial. Aviyal is served with Adai, Coconut rice, and Puliyodarai. We make this compulsorily on festivals like kannu pongal and aadi perukku .

I have posted the recipe of Kerala style Avial too. Personally in our home we add cooked peanuts or cooked chickpeas in avial . The crunchiness of it will enhance the taste.

We grind coconut, green chili, cumin seeds into a fine paste for making aviyal. I add little soaked cashew nuts to this. This enhances the creaminess of the aviyal. Also if you want to make a vegan version of avial this gives the best taste.

  1. Hi
    I am a North Indian but am a huge fan of Tamil food .. Thank you to make this blog .. I hope to make some like you ? I don't know if I can bring the taste which you make .. Your blog is bookmarked in my phone laptop iPad everywhere .. ☺️☺️ I would just suggest that please write few items in English language as people like me who are big fans of Tamil food would not understand few words .. But I must say again .. Thank you for this blog ?

  2. Hi payal,
    Thank you so much for the sweet words. As far as possible i am giving english names but for few dishes i have to write tamil names as people will search in that name only.For ex: for aviyal,aapam, sakkarai pongal i have to write the names like that only. Only in the ingredients list i can write jaggery, yam,moongdal, raw rice….Hope you understand. Still if you feel anything in english please feel free to mail me. Thanks again
