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!

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

A happy wife, an excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My husband is my pillar of support and my son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
