Avial is a side dish that we make at home during Pongal along with mixed vegetable sambar. My chithi shared this recipe with me. I don’t follow the measurements when I make avial. It is always by tasting and guessing that I add the ingredients. Pongal avaial is more special because we go wild with the vegetables that goes into the avial. We add different root vegetables that gives it more flavor.Raw mango pieces can also be added. Adjust the quantity of curd added if you are using raw mango to make avial.
I have used vegetables like carrot, beans, peas, cauliflower, butternut squash, plantain, potatoes and drumstick.
