Mutta Aviyal | Egg & Vegetables in Coconut Sauce

Mutta avial is a traditional kerala side dish with all the richness of avial (mix of vegetables in coconut sauce)and eggs.It best pairs with appam /Idiyappam and also serves a great side dish for rice too.This is a mildly spicy dish which even kids can enjoy too and a very healthy one too.I have used only potatoes in this dish but you can add drumsticks,carrots,egg plants too.Do check this out !!


Ingredients
eggs hard boiled 6
potato 2 medium sized
chilly powder 1 tsp
turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
green chillies 4-5 slit vertically
tomato 2 small chopped
onion 1/2 sliced
curry leaves
coconut oil 2 tsp

to grind 
coconut grated 1 cup
cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
garlic clove 1-2
shallots 4-5


Method

  • Boil the eggs and place in ice cold water for 10 mins. De shell the eggs,and cut into halves and then quarters.(Don't crumble the egg yolks)
  • Peel the potatoes and cut thick long slices.Place it in a bowl of water,leave aside.
  • Bring one cup of water to a boil,add the potato slices,sliced onions,slit green chillies, turmeric powder,chilly powder & adequate salt.Let it cook for seven mins,until half done.Add in the tomatoes and cover,cook till tomatoes are mashed and potatoes are done,water is almost evaporated.
  • In the meantime,grind the coconut,cumin seeds,garlic clove and shallots to a smooth paste.Add this paste in the cooked vegetables and mix well.Adjust salt now,add if required.Let it cook for 2-3 mins,add the quartered eggs.(Don't mix too much,gently fold in )Put off flame after a minute.
  • Add in the fresh curry leaves and coconut oil.Leave covered for 5 mins and then mix,Serve with rice/ Appam / Idiyyappam !!

Servings~ 2-3 adults
