Aviyal(Melange of vegetables with coconut grind)

This is a classic preparation of kerala which is also an integral part of all the sadhya's.Also a very healthy recipe as it has most of the vegetables.The main advantage of this recipe is this can be preparaed with as many or as few veggies as you like.Here you go!!!!!!!

Mixed Vegetables cut into 1 or 2 inch long sized pieces

(I’ve used 2 Carrot, 1 Raw Plaintain, 1/4 Yam, 2 drumsticks, Few beans and Ash Gourd a small piece)
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
Curd – 1/2 Cup
Cumin seeds-1 tsp
Coconut-1/4 Cup
Green Chillies-3
Curry Leaves – A sprig
Coconut Oil – 1 tbsp
Water – As needed
Salt – to taste

Boil all the vegetables in a vessel till they become tender with some salt and turmeric.
PS:Turmeric is optional here
Grind the grated coconut with cumin seeds and green chillies into a light paste without adding much water
Add this paste into the cooked vegetables and once the coconut paste gets coated with the veggies add curd.
Boil it for few more minutes then remove from fire.
Add coconut oil and curry leaves now.
This dish can be served with rice and also goes well with chappathis too...
