Olan is usually served as a part of Onasadya and is a side dish which is mild in taste and has a wonderful aroma of coconut milk, black eyed peas, yellow/white pumpkin, However here i tried my Olan with just black eyed peas and the taste was wonderful.
Black eyed peas 2 cup(Washed and soaked overnight)
Green chilly 2
Thick Coconut milk 1 cup
Salt as required
Oil 1 tsp
Mustard 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves few
Boil black eyed peas with green chilly salt and water.
Do not overboil the peas, keep it firm.
Once the black eyed peas are boiled add the coconut milk and bring to boil on medium flame for 4-5 mins, season with mustard and curry leaves.
