Sadya Special: Mathanga -Vanpayar Erissery / Pumpkin with Red Beans


Missing the taste and the smell of home ? Especially when the Vishu is almost here ? Oh i know exactly how some of you feel right now . No kanikonna , No holiday ....and we are so used to changing the very day to a weekend and celebrate it right. At least I am happy that we are doing that ....



Have you decided on the Sadya menu yet ? Wanna a peek into what I am making for our Vishu Sadya On Saturday ? I decided on everything except payasam , and I am sure it will take me some more time to pick it .Honestly I am not very good at making payasams and I am positive i will have to depend on some others for this. So this list is  in no order of how they serve in sadya and its just a random one ..

Ooh!!!! I am definitly gonna have a long day .......and a very yummy sadya ...


Coming to todays recipe , Pumpkin Erissery or as some say Elissery is a favorite of mine with or without the red beans part and I don't usually wait for an occasion of sadya to make it. The lil sweetness of Pumpkin combined with the coconut cumin paste and fried coconut topping is oh so irresistible for me.

I'd have invited myself over if I were in NY, sweetie! Hope you enjoyed the sadhya with your loved one, traditional celebrations are so nostalgic and special, elle? The photos are totally awesome!! Sounds like a cliche, I know. But every time I see your pics, there's no other term to describe it other than using superlatives!!

Zareena said...

Our fav erisseri. My Husband loves this a lot and usually I make this. Once again pics are just awesome. No other word to describe and lovely.
