Errissery is one of the most popular vegetable preparations of Kerala. Flavoured with a dry masala of onion, garlic and red chillies, the vegetables become a perfect accompaniment for hot rice and dal.

Here, we have used pumpkin, a low-sodium vegetable, together with nutritious chawli to make an exciting Errissery. This Pumpkin and Chawli Errissery is also low in salt, but it does not compromise on the flavour or aroma.

It is easy to make, and can become a part of the daily menu of those affected by high blood pressure.

You can also try other low-salt South Indian recipes like Bulgur Wheat Pongal and Seedai .
