For the first time I have chosen this special theme in BM. Because this month special theme is with bookmarked recipes from ABC cooking of last month BM. I have book marked some wonderful recipes from last month BM. BM 32 is really wonderful with all those amazing cooks, with all those delicious recipes.

                                                             From that edition I picked some three recipes for this month special theme. This Erisseri is one of them, Erisseri is a Kerala recipe which is served in Onam Sadya. By this time all my BM friends may understand from where I picked this recipe. Yes the one and only Rajani, she explained very clearly how to make sadya recipes and how to arrange them in a traditional Kerala style. Thank you so much for all those wonderful sadya recipes Rajani. I already tried some of them but this erisseri, Iam trying for the first time I think I got the consistency, taste. I used yam for today can also use pumpkin and cow peas, raw banana. Let's check the recipe

erisseri 1

Yam (kanda gadda)  ----  250 gms
Turmeric powder  ---  1/2 tea sp
Salt to taste
Grated fresh coconut  ---  1/2 cup
Cumin seeds  ---   1/2 tea sp
Red chillies   ----   2
Black pepper   ----   1 tea sp
Dry roast red chillies and black pepper corns and then grind with little water, coconut and cumin seeds in to a paste.
Oil   -----   1 tea sp (preferably coconut oil)
Mustard seeds  ----- 1 tea sp
Red chillies   --- 2 broken
Grated coconut   ----- 1/2 cup
Curry leaves   ----   6 leaves
1. Remove the skin, wash and cut the yam in to bite size pieces, add turmeric powder cover with water and pressure cook for three whistles in a medium heat.
2. Wait till the pressure released then open and transfer it to a pan, bring to a full boil in a high heat (remove if any extra water, this curry should look like kootu).
3.Add coconut paste to yam pieces cook for 6 minutes. Check the consistency if it reached the semi solid like kootu switch off the heat.
4. Heat coconut oil in a pan add mustard seeds let them splutter then add red chillies, curry leaves fry for a while.
5. Now add grated coconut and fry till coconut turn in to brown in color
6. Top this on the erisseri mix well.
Serve with rice.
