Avial

Pin It Now!
I had a little bit of some colorful vegetables in my refrigerator and wanted to make something out of it.It had been a long time since I made avial so I made this for lunch yesterday. Loved having it after a long time.


Ingredients

2 zucchinis cut lengthwise
1 chayote/chow chow cut lengthwise
1/2 bell pepper cut lengthwise
1/2 yellow bell pepper cut lengthwise
1/2 raw mango(mine was very sour) cut lengthwise(peeled the skin off)
1/2 tsp turmeric
3/4 cup yogurt(mine was very sour)
Salt as per taste
21/2 tbsp Coconut oil

Wet grind

3/4 cup shredded coconut(I used dessicated coconut)
10-12 medium hot chillies
1 tsp cumin seeds

Seasonings
1/4 tsp mustard seeds and cumin seeds each
Curry leaves

Method

Boil all the vegetables with turmeric and salt just till the zucchini is cooked nicely that way chayote has a nice crunch.Make a nice paste of coconut,chillies and cumin with 1/2 cup water.Add the coconut paste to the boiled vegetables and cook for 2 minutes,turn the stove on low and add the beaten yogurt,stir  and add salt if needed and switch the stove off.Heat 2 tbsp coconut oil in a pan and add mustard seeds when it splutters add cumin and curry leaves.Add the seasonings to the avial and give it a nice stir.Enjoy.
