Avial


Hope all those who celebrated Vishu and Newyear had a fabulous day yesterday. Thank you all for your warm wishes on my previous post. As mentioned earlier I arranged a Vishukkani and made a small sadhya.With just me, my hubby and my little one to eat I didnt pepare all the sadhya items. I have loads of leftover in my fridge even after making on a small scale. I prepared a Kallathappam(kannur special),Payasam,Sambar. Avial, kootu curry,Pachadi and a Thoran.
Today I am going to post the simple recipe of Avial which was requested by one of my friend last month , since Vishu was around the corner I posponed making it till yesterday.

Preparation
Cook the vegetables by adding salt and turmeric powder,
In a blender make a coarse paste of grated coconut,green chillies , cumin seeds and curry leaves.When vegetables are cooked add this paste and cook for 1 - 2 minutes. Add the beaten curd/yogurt and give it a good stir and turn off the flame immediately. Add coconut oil and give a good mix again.
