OLAN
Olan is usually served as part of a sadhya feast, a variety of dishes traditionally served on a banana leaf in Kerala. It is a dish made with red gram and some vegetables cooked in coconut milk, which gives it a rich and creamy texture. Since this is a less spicy dish, everyone, including children enjoy it with pleasure. Any sadhya is said to be incomplete without Olan as a part of the menu. We present you with an easy recipe for this simple yet delicious dish, prepared by Mrs. Hema Subramaniam.
