(U can use more or less vegetables )
At first wash and cut all the vegetables length wise that is about 1 inch length ..
Heat 1 table spoon of oil and add all vegetables and sauce for 5 minutes ..
Then add ,Chilli powder ,add turmeric powder, ,salt ,curry leaves , green chilli slits (2) 1tsp of coconut oil ..Mix well ..
Close the kadai and cook the vegetables in a medium heat..Stir Occasionally .
(I am using a nonstick pan so mostly no need to add water ..Otherwise add water to cook the vegetables )
Crush cumin and Small onions and remaining green chilli d curry leaves ..
Add this to the grated coconut and mix well with hand .. u can add pinch of turmeric powder and salt to this and mix ..( or u can give it a quick whip ).
.We don`t want our coconut mix to become a fine paste ..It should be like we blend for thoran ..
With a fork mix the curd to loosen up the lumps ..Add this curd to the cooked vegetables
and cook for 5 minutes ..
Then add coconut mix and gently mix ..
Then using a spoon gently press the avial and cook for few minutes in low flame till the steam comes ..
At this time if u want u can add crushed onion and green chilli on the top (opt)
Finally sprinkle coconut oil and few chopped curry leaves
Close the pan immediately and let it be like this 5 to 10 minutes ..
Then mix well and serve ..
Note: The spice is entirely depending up on the chilli u use,so change the amount of chilli accordingly ..and same with curd also ..
We prefer sour curd for making avial ..
