Avial recipe - Aviyal recipe - Perfect side dish for rice or Adai

Avial is my favourite. Especially with Adai. My 2nd son hates it. So I don't do it that often. I use whatever vegetable available Even though I prefer Indian vegetables in it. It is so easy to do. This is one dish I haven't found the replacement for coconut and do with coconut.
