Preparation Method of Olan :1)Lightly roast the beans and soak it in water for 8 hrs. Wash & strain well.
Extract 1/2 cup of thick milk and 1/2 cup of thin milk from the grated coconut.
In a pressure pan, add beans, both vegetables, chillies and second coconut milk.
Pressure cook upto 1 whistle.
After opening the lid, add salt and thick milk mixed with cornflour.
Simmer, stirring till the flour is cooked and all the ingredients are well blended.
Add coconut oil and curry leaves.
:- If you prefer the beans to be very soft, pressurise it first separately for 2-3 whistles and add.:- It is safer to add salt at the end to Olan because the volume shrinks after cooking and you can judge better.
:- Olan is ready.
everything if ok ...but cornflour???? if it was under fusion coking then excellent
