I am from Palghat. Though I have tasted olan without coconut milk, surely not with turmeric. In Palghat surely, they make with coconut milk.

My in laws are from Palakkad and my mother-in-law is positive she has never seen anyone in her family make olan like this. I trust her opinion as she is an excellent cook. Maybe there is a curry like this, but its def not olan. What is olan without coconut milk??
