Sushma Mallya said...

vineetha said...

Happy thanks giving to you too..Pumpkin erisserry is my favourite...next time undakumbol ginger um garlic um ittu erissery undakki nokanam.Garlic is very good in reducing cholesterol..so I too add garlic to most of my recipes..pakshe erisseryil try cheythilayirunu:)

Sarah Naveen said...

Hey all...thanx for the comments...
And i know most of you have doubts about adding Garlic to the erissery..Adding things like Garlic and Ginger depends on individual taste and flavor..My family loves it that way and we find taste in that [:)]..and plus as one of you have said garlic guards you against Cholestrol, which i believe a common issue with many even youngsters now [:)]..So I always try to Add these two things in everything i make....As i wrote its optional and u can add or leave depending on ur choice..I never think adding garlic to erissery is a sin..LOL....

Erica said...

Nice one!! But we add Vanpayaru with the Pumpkin!!!

Even though I am from Kerala, I have hardly stayed there. Now, when a whole pumpkin was brought from a friend's garden for me, I did not know what to do. I promptly looked up the net and I found this one. Am happy, I tried it and came out well. It was tasty and easy. Thank you.
