Aviyal is a south-Indian delicacy and seems like no two households make it the same. Essentially, all the recipes use the same ingredients – vegetables, curd (yoghurt), coconut, spices – but the details and proportions vary. This is my mother's Andhra recipe for Aviyal. I hope you like it as much as we do.
I enjoyed the unique flavors of this dish, but I thought it was too "seedy." I think for the first part, I'm going to use ground cumin instead of cumin seeds next time. - 23 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
