Here is another Onam recipe. Erissery is one of my fav dishes in Sadya, be it Mathanga Erissery or this one. However, I've a soft corner towards this one. I feel that Chena (yam) has a meaty texture and may be that's why it's one of my fav veggies. I love it in any form. I love it so much that whenever am home, it's made specially for me.
Though I like it in any form, my absolute fav one is, steamed Chena sprinkled with freshly grated coconut, with a drizzle of coconut oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. It's one of my comfort foods. If you havent tried it yet, please do it give it a try, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Make sure you get good quality Chena, sometimes if the water content is high in Chena, the flavour will not be there. Hope you get to try this dish as a part of your Onam celebration.
