This beauty right here. I am no pumpkin lover but erissery has always held a soft spot in my heart. Mom doesn’t make it that often, actually. She makes pumpkin koottu more often, with dal. But erissery is a quintessential part of the Onam Sadya and I realised I haven’t even tried it myself yet. That idea and this pumpkin combined, and the rest is history 😉
I couldn’t resist more pictures of the pumpkin. It was bright orange-yellow and smooth spotless on the outside. Since this was during Chinese New Year, vegetables in Singapore supermarkets were fresh and mostly from China.
