Olan with coconut milk

Olan is a speciality for Malayali feasts. It is simple to make and absolutely delicious.

IngredientsServes 4

1/4 Kilogram
Ash gourd
1/4 Kilo
Coconut milk
1/2 Cup
Boiled red cow peas
1/2 Cup
Green Chillies
Curry leaves
Coconut oil


  1. Cut the pumpkin and ashgourd into 2-inch pieces of half inch thickness and boil them together with salt and a bit of water. Both these vegetables have high water content. So no need to add a lot of water.
  2. Once they are soft and boiled, add the boiled red cow pea (vanpayar) to the mixture and stir. Add the cut green chillies and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the coconut milk to the mixture and stir. Once the coconut milk just comes to boil, turn off the flame and garnish with curry leaves. Add a tsp of coconut oil on the top and cover the dish. (Do not let the coconut oil boil for long as it tends to change the texture of the curry)
  4. Mix and serve after ten minutes.
