Method of  Preparation
Cut all the vegetables lengthwise of 1 inch..
In a pan add a few drop of oil and then put all the vegs( except mango) and add water up to 3/4 of vegs.
close the lid and cook in medium heat .. stir in between.
add  turmeric powder and salt
when the vegs are half done add the mango slices(or tamarind juice)
Grind the ingredients coarsely and add the grounded paste to the cooked vegs and cook for few minutes(Do not over cook)

If you feel mango will give you enough sour then avoid curd..If you like the taste of curd in the avial u can add it
