Pulisseri without coconut - featuring marrow

"Oru nalla pulisseri undengil pinne kari onnum venda". I have heard  ammachi say that a million times. Her speciality was kaya (plaintain) pulisseri though. I didnt get the raw plantain, instead I thought of making use of an English vegetable - Marrow. I tastes superb and eating it u feel like marrow should have been a keralan vegetable.

There are many varieties of pulisseri each with its own recipe. Presented is the easiest and quickest of them all. 




Ingredients

1 - Marrow - 200g
     Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
     Water - 2 cups or enough to cover pieces.
     Salt to taste
2 - Plain yogurt - 2 cups
3 - Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
     Dried red chilli - 2
     Red chilli powder - a pinch
4 - Oil - 1 tbsp

Method

- Cook marrow in water with the rest of (1) till cooked through
- Remove from heat and add yogurt. Mix well
- Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds and red chilli. Remove from heat, add red chilli powder and mix well. 
- Pour this on top of the cooked marrow- yogurt mix. Your pulisseri is ready.

It is tastes best with par boiled rice and poppadoms. 

Enjoy!
