Kerala Aviyal - Mixed vegetable curry of Kerala


Things needed:

Brinjal - 1 large 175 gms,
Carrot - 2 , 100 gms
Drumstick - 1
Raw Banana -1, 200g
Green Beans same portion as carrots

For seasoning:
Coconut oil- 2sp
Curry leaves 1-2 spring

If you are using dessicated coconut soak it in some water in a small pot first.
Cut all the vegetables into 2 inch long pieces and keep aside.
Note: While cutting Brinjal put it in a pot of water, so that it wont change its color .

Grind the coconut, turmeric,cumin n chilly powder.If needed add some water .

Tip: If you have dry or very tough drumstick cook it first in water until it is partially cooked. Then add other vegetables.

Take all the vegetables . Add the coconut paste.

Pour enough salt & water .(water level should be lower that of the veg., to avoid aviyal to be watery.)
Cook it covered with a lid.

When it is done add curry leaves & 2 sp coconut oil , to give it a good flavour. The flavour of aviyal!
Serve with Rice.
