Tomatoes cooked in coconut and yogurt gravy, simple and comforting Kerala veggie dish… I’d already posted the recipes for making 4 types of pulissery: Pumpkin, Cucumber, Mango and Pineapple.

One of the dishes served with Sadya… For this year’s Onam I made a few dishes that I’d not tried before, one of the dishes was erissery.

Any dish tastes great when roasted coconut paste is added, this is no exception....

It’s irresistible!...
