Title: Avial (Vegetable Stew) (S)
Yield: 6 Servings
Categories: Indian, Southern in, Vegetables

Ingredients:

1 lg Potato, peeled and cubed
1 lg Sweet potato, peeled and
-cubed
1 c Green beans, whole
1 c Carrot, peeled and sliced
1 c Green peas, fresh or frozen
1 c Tomato, diced
1/2 ts Turmeric
1 ts Salt
1/2 c Coconut shreds, unsweetened
3 Green chiles, 3-4
2 tb Ghee
1 Sprig karhi leaves, fresh
1 c Yogurt, plain


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.
