Aviyal has always been a totally veggie dish, and has never taken a turn. But this one has made me love it like anything. This is one dish which i loved whenever amma made it "especially' for me , and the only non- veg aviyal i have ever heard of!!!
5 boiled eggs
4 drumsticks ( cut into 1 1/2 inch length and slitted)
3 - 4 red chillies
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
few curry leaves
1 tbsp coconut oil
salt to taste
to grind :
1 1/2 cup of grated coconut
1 tsp chilly powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1-2 pearl onion (opt)
Grind the coconut, chilly powder, turmeric powder, cumin seeds and the pearl onion to a coarse paste adding very little water,(that's is the way we like it at home, if you want you can make it into a fine paste also).
Boil the eggs and cut it into half's vertically.
Heat the pan , pour a small amount of water and add drumsticks leaving it to cook.
Once the drumsticks are done, add the paste and salt, and cook for 5 - 10 mins in a medium heat.
Add the eggs and leave it on a low flame until the curry gets thickened.
Heat oil and add mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves, once the mustard starts spluttering add the seasoning to the aviyal.
Serve it hot with rice.....happy meal!!
