Avial is a dish that originated in kerala, but gained an equal fanfare in tamilnadu as well. Rare is the wedding or festive menu that does not include avial! the key to making excellent avial is to pay equal attention to the visual appeal – vegetables with contrasting colours such as carrot, beans, pumpkin etc are chosen, sliced evenly into thin 1 inch long pieces, and cooked to a crunchy consistency. If you’ve done this, you’ve crossed half the bridge successfully!
