Sadya Special - Aviyal



Aviyal is one of the main dish served in sadya.This Aviyal is quite different from regular aviyal ,as we don't use water in this recipe,the water that comes out of the veggies itself enough.For Sourness i am using Mango a,so make sure you have a raw sour green mango for this recipe.Coconut oil is the main thing which gives aromatic flavours which stands top for the name aviyal.

Ingredients:


Yam - 2 cup
Raw Plantain - 1/4 cup 
Cucumber - 2 cup
Snake Guard - 1 cup 
Ash Gourd - 1 cup
Carrot - 1/2 cup
Drum stick - 1/2 cup
Curry leaf - 3 sprig
Beans - 1/2 cup
Long Bean(Payar) - 1/4 cup
Green Mango - 1/2 cup
Green Chilly - 4 slit
Salt
Coconut Oil - 3 tbsp
Turmeric Pd - 1/2 tsp
Chilly Pd - 1 tsp

For Grinding:


Coconut Grated - 1 to 1/2 cup(More coconut more tastier)
Jeera/Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp

Grind this to a very coarse mixture.

Method:
1.Take a pan and add 1 tbsp of coconut oil and add curry leaf ,then all the vegetables from yam till long beans ,dont add mango and green chilly now.then add turmeric pd ,chilly pd and salt and cover and let it cook in medium flame ,mixing in 10 min .Cook till all vegetables are little soft.MAke sure you dont cook vegetables too much for aviyal,it needs to stay in shape even after mixing but cooked.


2.Then open lid and add mango and green chillies now and again cover for 5 min till mango is cooked.Add mango now only ,if you add earlier with vegetables ,veggies may not cook because of the sour tendencies of mango.

3.Now open lid and give a mix and add crushed coconut and jeera mixture and give a stir and mix them well.Now finally add a handful of curry leaf and a tbsp of coconut oil for extra flavour and transfer the aviyal to serving dish.Dont let it sit in hot stove or hot pan as we added extra oil for flavour we don't want to crisp the vegetables.
So The delicious Aviyal served in Marriage or in sadya is ready to be served.
