Of  all the Kerala sadya dishes if you ask me to pick my favorite dish I need not think twice. It had been, it would be and it is Aviyal. This is the Thrissur version of the Aviyal recipe.  If you haven't tried this version try this for this Vishu and I am sure you will love it.
Green plantain-1
Drumstick-8 pieces
Long Beans-4
Cucumber( Vellarikka)-1/2 cup
Yam(chena)-1/2 cup
Snake gourd( Padavalanga)-1/4 cup
Turmeric Powder-1/2tsp
Chilli powder-1/2 tsp
Green chilly -4
Shallot-2 crushed
Curry Leaves-3 sprigs
Coconut Oil-4 tbsp
Curd/ GreekYogurt (sour)-1/4 cup
Salt-to taste
Cumin seeds(jeera)-1/2tsp (optional)
Grated Coconut -1 and 1/2 cups
Take a thick bottom kadai and add 2 tsp of coconut oil,curry leaves and all the vegetables along with salt,turmeric,crushed ginger, shallots and chilli powder.Mix every thing well ( or you can mix all the veggies along with salt chilli ,ginger,shallots and turmeric before adding to the kadai) ,now cook this closed till half done.In a food processor add grated coconut  and cumin seeds,pulse this 2 to 3 times so that you get the coconut crushed , add green chilli and yogurt and pulse one more time ( See that coconut mix is not fine we need it to be coarse. Add this to the half done vegetables you should cook without covering the kadai from this point on wards. Once vegetables  are 3/4th done  and dry  add more coconut oil and curry leaves.Give a quick stir and transfer to serving bowl.
