Step 1

Preparation Method of Olan :
1)Lightly roast the beans and soak it in water for 8 hrs. Wash & strain well.

Step 2

Extract 1/2 cup of thick milk and 1/2 cup of thin milk from the grated coconut.

Step 3

In a pressure pan, add beans, both vegetables, chillies and second coconut milk.

Step 4

Pressure cook upto 1 whistle.

Step 5

After opening the lid, add salt and thick milk mixed with cornflour.

Step 6

Simmer, stirring till the flour is cooked and all the ingredients are well blended.

Step 7

Add coconut oil and curry leaves.

Step 8

:- 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.

Step 9

:- Olan is ready.
