Ulli Theeyal

    Ulli theeyal means shallots or pearl onion in roasted coconut gravy, which is originated from Kerala in South India. It also differs slightly from region to region in Kerala. Theeyal can be prepared with any vegetables, just one thing, the gravy remains the same. Most popular theeyals are ulli theeyal and pavaka theeyal. It has it’s own space in traditional Sadhya.

    Basically, I like  the flavor of roasted coconut slightly dominating and then the tanginess of tamarind, it depends on personnel taste.
Let’s peak the recipe…
