Well to talk about “Erissery” it’s a part of Kerala Sadya (Feast) made with assorted veggies using ground coconut paste and seasoned with roasted coconut. Erissery is a favorite amongst most of keralites, since its unique taste together with the aroma gives you a feel of the home away from home…absolutely easy to make and light on ingredients.
There are different varieties of erissery made with different veggies, with or with out pulses, here as the title suggest I’ve used Jackfruit (Chakka in Malayalam language) as a main ingredient. which is my favorite too….the recipe source credited to my MIL.:)
