Step 1

Pressure cook the soaked chana dal with a little turmeric for about 4 whistles. Let the pressure settle by itself. Mash the dal with a ladle. Keep aside.

Step 2

Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the chopped onion, ginger, garlic, curry leaves and saute till the onions start turning golden.

Step 3

Add the tomatoes and cook covered till the tomatoes blend with the mixture.

Step 4

Now add the chopped cabbage, green peas, cooked dhal, chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric, sugar and salt required. Pressure cook for two whistles with enough water.
:- Make sure not to add too much water because the erisseri should be of a gravy consistency.

Step 5

Grind the coconut with the cumin seeds and keep aside.

Step 6

Once the pressure settles by itself, open the pressure cooker and add the ground coconut mixture and let it boil again for a few minutes.

Step 7

Heat oil in a wok and splutter the mustard seeds and dried red chillies and pour over the curry.

Step 8

Serve hot with rice.

Step 9
