Boil and shell eggs. Take the egg yolk out and slice the whites. Keep aside. Grind together grated coconut, green chillies, shallots, turmeric powder and chilli powder.
Add this paste to some sliced onions – raw cashewnuts that have been peeled and sliced can also be added to the onions if you like - and cook with water. When the water has almost completely evaporated, add the sliced egg whites and some coconut oil, to get your egg aviyal.
