Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for a perfect avial recipe. Firstly, cut all the vegetables to the same size. Otherwise, each vegetable takes different time to cook. Since each vegetable needs different time to cook, add the veggies which take more time to cook at first and then add the soft veggies. Secondly, the veggies should be soft but not mushy. You can also cook the veggies in a pressure cooker for one whistle.

You can also use any country vegetables to this avial recipe.  While cooking veggies, don’t add more water because the vegetables also release a lot of their juices.

Finally, you can skip curd, if you are adding raw mangoes. Some people use raw mangoes or tamarind as a souring agent, which is a common practice in Kerala whereas I have used yogurt as the souring agent, which is common in TamilNadu. You can also add the yogurt while grinding the coconut instead of water.
