  • Pressure cook the soaked chana dal with a little turmeric for about 4 whistles. Let the pressure settle by itself. Mash the dal with a ladle. Keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the chopped onion, ginger, garlic, curry leaves and saute till the onions start turning golden.
  • Add the tomatoes and cook covered till the tomatoes blend with the mixture.
  • Now add the chopped cabbage, green peas, cooked dhal, chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric, sugar and salt required. Pressure cook for two whistles with enough water. :- Make sure not to add too much water because the erisseri should be of a gravy consistency.
  • Grind the coconut with the cumin seeds and keep aside.
  • Once the pressure settles by itself, open the pressure cooker and add the ground coconut mixture and let it boil again for a few minutes.
  • Heat oil in a wok and splutter the mustard seeds and dried red chillies and pour over the curry.
