Olan In Coconut Milk

by AnitaJacob
Olan is a mild, light flavored curry with the flavors of coconut milk, red gram, pumpkin. Olan is a traditional Kerala side dish which is regular at every Onamsadya.It's a mild stew that is delicately spiced with green chillies, flavored with curry leaves and coconut milk. This dish is very subtle in flavor and avoids the use of any spices or masala. The mildly sweet coconut milk, crushed curry leaves and aromatic coconut oil gives this dish a spectacular clean fresh flavor.
