This is my Contribution to the JFI for Coconut hosted by Ashwini. Thanks Ashwini for hosting the Jihva for Ingredients .


Mixed Vegetables - 3 Cups - Diced Medium Sized

(Use Vegetables like Winter Melon, Potato, Carrot, Beans, Peas, Drumstick, Plantain, Yam)

Grated Fresh Coconut - 1/2 Cup

Green Chillis - 2

Cumin Seeds - 1 tablespoon

Beaten Curd/Yogurt - 1/2 Cup

Curry Leaves

Coconut Oil - 1 tablespoon


Cook Vegetables with Salt, until tender. (Do not over cook the Vegetables. Do not add more water for cooking the Vegetables as the Avial will become too watery)

Meanwhile, Grind Coconut along with Green Chillis and Cumin Seeds.

When the Vegetables are cooked, add the Ground Coconut and Stir gently.

When the content heats up, Reduce the heat completely.

Stir in the Curd/Yogurt.

Mix in the Curry Leaves and Coconut Oil. Keep closed.
