At first wash and cut all the vegetables length wise that is about 1 inch length ..
Put all the vegetables into a non stick kadai and add turmeric powder, ,salt ,curry leaves , green chilli slits (2) 1tsp of coconut oil and water upto 3/4 of the vegetables.
Close the kadai and cook the vegetables in a medium heat..Stir Occasionally .
When done keep aside ..Check the salt
In a blender at first add grated coconut and cumin seeds..Give a quick blend
Then open the jar and add remaining green chilli ,chopped small onions ,curry leaves , very little turmeric powder and salt ..
This time also give a quick blend..We don`t want our coconut mix to become a fine paste ..It should be like we blend for thoran ..
To this coconut mix add curd and mix well..
Then switch on the gas and place the cooked vegetables ..
Then add this coconut curd mix to the cooked vegetables 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 ..
