Aviyal recipe or avial recipe explained with step by step pictures and a quick video. Aviyal or avial is a mixed vegetable sambar or kootu recipe. Aviyal is prepared using mixed vegetables, coconut, cumin seeds and green chili. Aviyal or avial is very popular across Udupi Mangalore region of Karnataka.
Aviyal is very tasty, very healthy and a wholesome food. The mixed vegetables used in the gravy makes it different and you will enjoy eating this with either rice or chapathi. I have used curd in this recipe, which you can replace it with either raw mango or tamarind. If you are using raw mango, include it with the vegetables. If you are using tamarind, add it after cooking the vegetables. Also I have added a tsp of coconut oil at the end, which enhances the avial taste. But if you are not used to coconut oil, then just skip it.
My Mother-in-law prepares very tasty aviyal. While speaking we call this gravy as "Avil". Including varieties is always good. You must include varieties of vegetables or varieties of fruits or varieties of grains in your diet. So the varieties of vegetables used in this recipe makes it more healthy. A dry version of this recipe is very popular in the neighbouring state, Kerala. Even that tastes too good and both are my favourites.
