vegetable avial recipe south indianAvial /aviyal is a true comfort food that has occupied an inevitable place in South Indian lunch menu more than that it proves to be “special” because it has its own history how it was discovered by bhima(according to Wikipedia). It’s not a must that you should have some particular group of veggies in hand to do this (vegetable avial recipe south indian )! as always we will be having like some common vegetables like drumsticks,carrots,beans and potato vegetable avial recipe south indianin hand.As Raw mangoes are in season I have added that also!if you don’t have just give a miss.Me and my hubby have a strong liking for Adai-avial combination. I strongly believe that the coconut oil used is the main “play” for all the flavour and taste of this dish.I don’t like my avial to be dry at-least some gravy should be there which will be perfect to have with adai.Not all will add coconut milk but I always love to add to get exact creaminess and texture but it’s purely optional. In the same way rice flour is added for making avial thick so you can very well avoid it if you don’t like.Some times curds are replaced with tamarind also but I have never tried it.
