mami,my mother used to make this very often. she is no more. i also make it often.my kids like it.but for seasoning instead of gingerly oil,if u use coconut oil .just pour the oil on top and when u r ready to eat just mix it it will taste yummy.

Hi Latha, It's coconut oil only. It was a typo. I corrected it now. Thanks for pointing this out.


I see some drumsticks (murungai) in the picture but not mentioned in the recipe. I believe for avial murungai adds more flavor.

Hi Sundar, Thanks, i have added drumsticks now. It was a miss. Thanks for letting me know.

mami can we add curd or butter milk instead of tamarind. I have seen my patti make this with butter milk (Palghat Patti)

My mother in law used to add curd n it tastes very yummy
