1 large potato, peeled and cubed
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 cup green beans, whole
1 cup carrot, peeled and sliced
1 cup green peas, fresh or frozen
1 cup tomato, diced
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut shreds, unsweetened
3 green chiles, 3-4
2 tablespoon ghee
1 sprig karhi leaves, fresh
1 cup yogurt, plain

Directions: How to Cook Avial (Vegetable Stew) (S)

Par-boil the vegetables except the peas and tomatoes in 2 cups of water with the turmeric and salt. Add the left out vegetables towards the end of when the others are cooked. Grind the coconut, green chilies and yogurt in a blender to form a smooth paste (I use my hand held blender to mince the chilies and add them to the coconut and yogurt). Add the paste to the pot containing the vegetables. In a saute pan melt the ghee and sizzle the Kahri leaves for a minute or so. Add to the pot and simmer for a couple of minutes. Combine and serve.
