Kerala onam olan

Nadan Olan recipe
Olan is a must recipe in festivals like Onam . Vegetables & vanpayar ( cowpeas) are cooked in coconut milk,without adding any spices or flavours. Simple but very tasty recipe. While you can also make this even if one or two vegetables missing, cowpeas should be included in the recipe gives the main taste to the Olan. I have also tried it before without adding cowpeas. hmmm

Things Needed:
1/2 cup cowpeas

1 cup bottleguard
1 cup yellow pumpkin
1/2 cup raw banana
1 green chilly

1 coconut cream + 25 gm coco. powder (or coconut milk from 1 coconut)

Soak cowpeas for atleast 5 hrs. Then pressure cook it adding water & 1/2 tsp salt.
Cook cut vegetables in 1/2 portion of coconut milk,little bit water adding curry leaves & salt.
After vegetables are cooked add cowpeas into this, add rest of the coconut milk . Cook until the sauce thickens.
