Olan is a staple and a simple delicious dish from Kerala that is healthy and nutritious. The Olan recipe is made with yellow pumpkin or the white pumpkin also known as the ash gourd. It’s a mild stew that is delicately spiced with green chillies, flavored with curry leaves and coconut milk. It is also a dish that is served during the Onam Sadya meal of the Onam festival.
Olan is yet another inevitable dish on the traditional Sadya menu. This dish is very subtle in flavor and avoids the use of any spices or masala. The mildly sweet coconut milk, crushed curry leaves and aromatic coconut oil gives this dish a spectacular clean fresh flavor.
