Plantain and Yam Eriseri - delicious side dish for your lunch with plantain and yam. There are few different ways to cook this eriseri, but I like this method. Making eriseri is simple. Cut both the vegetables uniformly and cook the vegetables until soft, then add the grounded coconut pepper masala. The grated coconut is ground along with black peppers, cumins and small onions. After adding the coconut paste, let the curry simmer for 10 minutes or until it blends well with the vegetables. Next, a tablespoon of powdered jaggery is added to the curry to enhance the taste. Then a handful of fresh grated coconuts is fried well in the coconut oil until brown and added to the dish.
