Aviyal Recipe – Adai Aviyal -Mix Veg Curry in Curd Recipe

Aviyal Recipe – Adai avial – Mix Veg Curry in Curd Recipe 

Aviyal is a “No onion, no tomato, no garlic” dish in which vegetables are cooked with curd with the mild flavor of coconut and who can say “No” to that if it is so easy to make??? 🙂 Avial is a special side dish for adai and also can be eaten with Rice. I used to prefer eating Adai with ghee and sugar until I tasted it with Aviyal. It makes Adai even tastier. And, You don’t need to rush to the market with your bag as you have a lot of options for veggies to choose for Aviyal.

Why should you try Avial:

Needless to describe the goodness of all the veggies you would be adding to AVIYAL. Apart from that, we have curd, which would aid digestion and good for heart.It would strengthen your bones and teeth too. It is a “No onion – No garlic” recipe so that Oldies can have it on some fasting day also 🙂 Do bookmark this page as you might want to visit this recipe more often 🙂

My recitation on Avial:

Both Deepa and I have always liked all versions of milk like paneer, curd, ghee, butter milk etc but our younger brother has got an aversion towards curd and butter milk. 😐 ( If you think like “How can a person not like curd??!!??” ,then “hiiiiii, we are birds of a feather” 😀 ). He always used to move his plate away whenever I ate curd/ curd rice (He still does that.. Grrr :@ ). When we were all school-going kids, once I decided to make him eat curd rice and was waiting for a good chance. One fine evening on some Pooja day, I took a bit of curd rice and told him that it was “pongal-Prashadham” (sacred food provided in temples which looks like curd rice) and asked him to open his mouth for that. He did eat that suspiciously saying that it did not taste like Pongal at all. I waited until he swallowed that and then ran away saying that it was curd rice before he could hit me. He was upset for a week for eating that and I had to pacify him with my stupid drawings made out of pencil-wastes 😀

My brother, who has such an aversion towards curd likes AVIYAL much whose main ingredient is curd. These days, he says that the only way he could eat curd is AVIYAL. AVIYAL has got such a nice taste that it does not need to coax him that it is some prashadham that could get him good marks. 🙂

I guess, I have bored you enough with my Aviyal story.. 🙂 So, over to Aviyal Recipe from Home Making Delight now..
