  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • Few Curry Leaves For Garnishing
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil

For Grinding

  • 1 tbsp Raw Rice
  • 1/3 Cup Grated Coconut
  • 3 Green Chili
  • 3 Red Chili
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds


Soaking Tamarind

  • Soak Tamarind in warm water for 10 mins and extract the juice and set it aside

Grinding Process

  • Wash & Soak raw rice in water 10 mins. After 10 mins, drain the water from soaked rice. Add grated coconut, cumin seeds, green and red chili and grind everything to a smooth paste

Cooking Veggies

  • First take all sliced veggies, add turmeric powder and water and cook the veggies till soft and tender
  • When the veggies are soft, add tamarind extract along with salt and boil for about 5 mins to get rid off the raw smell of the tamarind extract
  • After 5 mins, add the coconut spice paste and stir well. Adjust the consistency of the kuzhambu by adding water
  • Boil the Aviyal Kuzhambu for 2-3 minutes and then switch off the flame. 
  • Garnish with Coconut oil and curry leaves 
  • Serve the delicious Aviyal Kuzhambu with hot steaming rice. 



  1. We can cook all the veggies for 2-3 whistles in pressure cooker and then add tamarind extract and coconut spice paste
  2. Generally we don't do tempering for Aviyal. So I skipped for Aviyal Kuzhambu too. But if you want, you can temper with mustard and curry leaves
  3. Coconut oil would be a perfect choice.
