Veggies Packed South Indian Goodness

Avial is a dish which is believed to have been originated from South India and is common in Kerala and Udupi cuisine. It is a thick mixture of vegetables and coconut, seasoned with coconut oil and curry leaves. Traditionally, some of the vegetables used in the preparation of avial is carb heavy such as potato, yam, raw banana etc. Here were replaced all these vegetables with low carb vegetables keeping the taste of the avial intact. Serve this with a side with some cauli'rice' or eat it on its own. Either way, this is a satisfying and fulfilling meal idea.
