Olan is one of the must have dishes in any Kerala sadya (feast). It is a side dish comprising of chunks of ash gourd and cow peas cooked in coconut milk. Not only is it tasty but also easy to prepare as well.

Olan can be prepared using Pumpkin instead of ash gourd or a combination of both. I have used only Ash gourd here. Here is the recipe.
