Aviyal - recipe with a lot of vegetables

 A dish that is common to Tamil, Kerala and Udupi cuisine, it does have variations according to the cuisine. A mixture of vegetables enriched with ground coconut and seasoned with coconut oil, this dish is quite similar to the mixed veg kootu. Aviyal is a very essential part of Kerala vegetarian Sadaya.  Many think that it is a very tough dish to make, thinking of the different vegetables that you have to add to the dish, but in reality it is quite easy to make. Aviyal can be made in semi solid or super solid or liquid form. Every house hold has its own taste and vareity in making this aviyal. In marriages mostly it is made is super solid form so that it becomes a side dish. The semi solid or the liquid form can be mixed with rice or can be had with adai or pesarattu.  Raw Banana, Potato and Carrot, if added in a bit excess quantity than the other veggies definitely give an enhanced taste. My mom makes it in liquid form and mil makes it in semi solid form and I make it in both ways as

Mixed Vegetable Bonda by Shripriya

Starter recipe posted by Shripriya Ramakrishan for party menu contest entry 1 Make the mixed vegetable curry with potato, carrot, beans, peas, capsicum etc., and make lemon sized balls. Instead of dipping it in the Besan gravy, we are going to wrap it in white bread. Remove the brown part in the bread, sprinkle little bit water on the white part, place the mixed vegetable ball on the bread, then wrap the mixed vegetable ball with the bread...if the bread is hard and you are not able to wrap, then wet your hands and try. It will work out. Then deep fry these rolls. The taste will be awesome. I made this for one of the potluck parties....and the guests were going ga-ga over this. :)
