Erissery is a Kerala Recipe, more or less like “Kootu” recipe of Tamil Nadu. It can be prepared with one or more vegetables like Pumpkin, Jackfruit, Green Banana, Yam and Cow Gram (Karamani also known as “Thatta Payaru or Ven Payaru”). I made this with Vazhaikai (Green Banana), Senai kizhanku (Yam or Suran) and Karamani.

how to deal with the itchiness when you peel and cut the yam, and when you eat? why does it itch?
The fluid in yam is causing the itching. However if you keep the yam for few days, it wil not cause itching. Moreover the Elephant Yam which we use in this curry is of that much itchy type. To prevent itching while cutting, you can apply little oil in your hands and cut it. To prevent the itchiness after cooking, you can add tamarind while cooking. It will prevent the itchiness while eating.
