I am from Palghat. Though I have tasted olan without coconut milk, surely not with turmeric. In Palghat surely, they make with coconut milk.
yes, this is a wonderful olan recipe.. we too make the same way. its so easy bse there is no need to add coconut milk, even then its so tasty. well done..
i think this is the way olan is made in our home (manjeri)
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??
this is not oln at all.in olan turmeric powder should not be added.and coconut milk is essential.
Iam sure about this receipe.. In our place "olan" like this,and we are not putting coconut milk in this olan.. another kind also there, using white pumkin and coconut milk...So don`t be too smart....
olan without coconut milk? strange.are u sure this is what they make in palakad
and adding turmeric in olan.....ha ha this is not olan at all
