This is one of my favourite item in a sadya. Also, this is one of the veg dishes that I learnt to make during my initial cooking days. I've been wanting to post this recipe here for a long time, but it happened only now. Anyways, what's a better time than Onam to post this, right?
Since you are busy with Onam preparations, I”m going staright to the recipe…

Hi Akki’s mommy,
Great to know that the recipe reached you on time :) Thanks a lot for your comment dear..

I’ve just given the recipe, which we usually make at home. Yeah, sometimes vanpayar is added to erissery, but I usually make it without vanpayar..

Hi Maria, Dont we add green grams (cherupayar) also to mattanga while cooking?
I’ve seen some people adding Vanpayar also in this curry, hearing about cherupayar for the first time. I usually make it without any payar..
