Popular in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, it is a must have during festivals, special occasions and marriages. Avial is made either as a gravy or as a dry dish. The Kerala style Avial uses green chillies for the masala paste and hence it is white in colour (also known as White Aviyal). Whereas in Tamil Nadu, red chillies are commonly used so it is in a red/orange colour. Avial is a popular dish in the Tamil Brahmin cuisine.
