Olan with coconut milk


Olan is a speciality for Malayali feasts. It is simple to make and absolutely delicious.

4 Servings
Pumpkin14 Kilogram
Ash gourd14 Kilo
Coconut milk12 Cup
Boiled red cow peas12 Cup
Green Chillies 2-3
Curry leaves
Coconut oil
Preparation Steps
  • Cut the pumpkin and ashgourd into 2-inch pieces of half inch thickness and boil them together with salt and a bit of water. Both these vegetables have high water content. So no need to add a lot of water.

  • Once they are soft and boiled, add the boiled red cow pea (vanpayar) to the mixture and stir. Add the cut green chillies and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes.

  • Add the coconut milk to the mixture and stir. Once the coconut milk just comes to boil, turn off the flame and garnish with curry leaves. Add a tsp of coconut oil on the top and cover the dish. (Do not let the coconut oil boil for long as it tends to change the texture of the curry)

  • Mix and serve after ten minutes.

I love to cook and feed my family and friends. I also love to try out new recipes, so do visit my page for some conventional and interesting food ideas. I truly believe that we should not eat to live, rather we should live to EAT! Happy cooking!:)
