A quintessential dish of onam feast, kalan is basically raw banana and yam cooked in a spicy yogurt sauce. Lately, I’ve been addicted to this South Indian curry, which is quite similar to pulissery I’ve already posted on the blog. No doubt, it’s definitely worth a try.
Few things before we go to the recipe:
The stars of the dish, raw banana and yam – Traditionally, kalan is made using equal quantities of raw banana and yam. If you’ve a look at my ingredients list, you’ll find that I don’t have any yam. This is because I live in a place where fresh yam is not available. However, the dish was absolutely delicious even without it.
