Aviyal is a classic Kerala recipe. It is a delightful mix of all kinds of vegetables in yoghurt & grated coconut and is seasoned with coconut oil. The concoction of flavors of all the vegetables takes the cake.

ur receipe has missed one of the main ingdnts which brings flavour to it..while grinding the coconut u should add 2-3 small onions&jeera.moreover the vegetables should be cut lengthwise(2-3 inches) and not cubed.lastly u shld add coconut oil once don
