Mixed vegetable theeyal


Heat a non-stick pan and roast the grated coconut along with coriander seeds, dry red chilly and curry leaves to a golden brown color. Switch off flame and allow to cool. Once cooled grind this to a smooth paste adding garlic, turmeric powder and 1 shallot. Set aside.

Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds and dry red chilly. Now add the vegetables and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add the green chilly and water. Adjust salt and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the ground coconut paste and mix well. Now extract the tamarind juice and add it to the theeyal. Mix well and cook covered at a low flame until vegetables are cooked and theeyal becomes thick. Serve hot with rice…

Notes: You can also add drumsticks, Bitter gourd, Snake gourd or any vegetable of your choice to make this theeyal.
