Kerala Style Pacha Mango Avial Recipe

Avial is a staple Kerala dish which has loads of vegetables in it, and Pacha Mango Avial Recipe is a beautiful twist to the traditional recipe. Aviyal is cooked vegetables with coconut-green chili paste in it, and no other spices or spice powders. It tastes delicious and goes perfect with red rice(Kerala rice) and sambar. You can use vegetables like carrots, elephant yam, plantain, pumpkin, eggplant(brinjal), drumstick, beans etc to make Aviyal. Add a little but wonderful twist to the usual aviyal by adding raw mango (pacha manga). A beautiful sour taste from the mangoes makes this aviyal really delicious! Definitely give this variation of aviyal a try when mango are still in season. Serve Kerala Style Pacha Mango Avial Recipe with steamed rice, Pachai Sundakkai Puli Kuzhambu Recipe (Turkey Berry Tamarind Based Gravy)Cabbage Thoran (Poriyal) Recipe to make a complete lunch meal.
