Avial - Kerala Sadya Special

Avial is one of my favorite recipes from childhood. Its such an easy dish to make and the real beauty of this dish is in the fact that , you can use any veg you like in this and the result would be and amazingly delicious and healthy side dish with rice. Oh I can't imagine a onam and vishu sadya without this..Yumm! 
Are you on a diet , then this is for you! Instead of 1.5 cup grated coconut add just 1/4 cup and add only those" good for you on diet" vegetables and make this .
