Erissery

Erissery is a special dish prepared in Kerala for Sadhi. My paati prepare this dish at home. It can be prepared using yam, plantain, pumpkin, raw jackfruit or the combination of two vegetables. It is served with rice, pickle or pachadi. I have used plantain. Instead of that we can use any other mentioned vegetable.
