Varutha Chena Erissery

Varutha Chena Erissery( Yam/ Suran Erissery)

Erissery is a unique vegetarian dish of Kerala which is a combination of any vegetable like pumpkin,raw banana, snake gourd with red beans or black eyed beans.What makes it special is the seasoning with roasted coconut.I have already posted one with pumpkin, but this recipe is different. I got this recipe from Dhuythi and Swathi. Thanks to both my dear friends for this lovely recipe.This is a really delicious and I am sure every one will love it.

Ingredients
Chena/elephant yam- 2 cups
Vanpayar/Red Gram- 3/4 cup
Pepper powder- 1 tsp
Grated coconut- 3/4 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Cumin- 1/3 tsp
garlic - 2 cloves

For seasoning-
Shredded coconut- 1/3 cup
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Whole Pepper - a few
Dry red chilly -2
Curry leaves- 2 springs

Soak beans for at least three hours and cook them and set aside.
Chop chena/suran into cubes and cook it along with 1/2 cup of water, turmeric, pepper powder and salt.
Make a fine paste of coconut (3/4 cup) along with cumin and garlic and add this to the cooked yam. Add the cooked cooked red beans. Simmer for two minutes and switch off the flame.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When the splutter add dry red chilly, pepper corns and curry leaves and fry for a minute. Add shredded coconut 1/3 cup and roast till brown. Add this to the cooked vegetable and mix. Serve with rice.
