       I had a variety of veggie but all in small quantity which forced me make this aviyal.This is a very special dish to me. When i was in college, this was one of my favorites in hostel.. Those days of boarding :).. Really miss those times !!Sooper duper easy recipe which takes not more than 15 minutes  to make it.

  1. Veggies - Beans,drumstick,Carrots,Snake gourd/Yam (Anything which is left over )
  2. Butter milk / Churned Yogurt  - 1 cup.
  3. Cumin seeds - 1 spoon
  4. Grated coconut - 3 spoons
  5. Ginger - 1 inch
  6. Green chillies  - 4 (as per spice level)
  7. Curry leaves 
  8. Salt
  9. Curry leaves 
  10. Coconut oil
How to make it:
  1. Steam cook the veggies and keep it aside with little salt.
  2. Grind grated coconut, cumins seeds, ginger , curry leaves and green chillies. You can add 1 or 2 cashews in this to add more taste to it ;). I'm lill calorie conscious, so i did not!!
  3. Now take a kadai and add Coconut oil, and add cumin seeds, mustard and curry leaves and allow it to splutter. 
  4. Now add the grind paste and the veggie and allow it to cook. Add required salt and let it cook in medium flame. You can feel the aroma coconut oil all over your kitchen :)
  5. Once the raw smell goes off, switch off the flame and now add the butter milk and let it stay on the stove for 2 -3 mins. You can keep the stove in "low" if you feel its little raw.
  6. Garnish with Cilantro and server hot with rice and Vadagam / brinjal fry :). Enjoy!!!
