E for Eruserry

Its time for E in the alphabet series and its a dish all the way from Kerala, Eruserry. This is a traditional dish of Kerala which definitely finds its place in the Onam Sadhya. I usually had a thought that it was a very complicated dish, but it is a very easy dish to make and is packed with protein too. I learnt this dish during my recent trip to Kerala. Chef Suman of The Park Kumarakom, taught me this dish. 


Yellow pumpkin - 1 cup ( cut into small pieces )
Black eyes peas - 1 cup
Red chilies - 3 nos
Coconut scrapings - 1 cup
Coconut Milk - 2 cups
Mustard - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 2 strands
Salt to taste
Coconut Oil as required


Boil the black eyes peas and pumpkin together until soft and mushy

Dry roast the coconut scrapings with coconut oil and keep aside

In a large wok heat coconut oil
When the oil is hot, add mustard seeds and red chilies
Followed by curry leaves
To this add the steamed black eyed peas and pumpkin mixture 
To this add some dry roasted coconut scrapings and coconut milk
Lower the flame and keep stirring
The coconut milk, dry roasted coconut and the pumpkin mixture will blend together
Adjust salt and serve hot with rice.
