Not having Avial for Onam/Vishu is not having a Complete Onam Sadya.So it is a must,never skip it.
Now for what i know,this is the actual recipe MINUS the coconut oil( i cant stand the smell)
And once again i dedicate another recipe to my mama who makes the Worlds Best Avial,i hope you like how i make it mama ! mwahhh
RULE NO 1 : CUT ALL VEGGIES THE SAME SIZE
RULE NO 2: DO NOT OVER COOK THE VEGGIES AFTER ADDING THE YOGURT MIX
|best part is you get to eat all different veggies at once|
|soak the raw banana in turmeric and salt for 15 min|
this will remove the black sticky fiber out
|for the paste |
curry leaf>grind all this (not too fine)
|what i do is,|
i first crush the cumin ,green chili and curry leaf ..give it 1 crush ,then add in yogurt and coconut
|see how the paste is ,still coarse|
|to cook the veg,first cook the veggies that take longer time.|
add very less water when you cook them,also add salt !
PLZ COVER YOUR POT,SAVE ENERGY !
|now its time to add the brinjal and pumkin,they cook fast so they go last !|
|add in your paste,gently stir.|
|cover for 10 min...no overcooking this|
|ta da there you go,its ready !|
wish my mama was here to taste it !
