This is one of my favourite.... yes, ABSOLUTE favourite thoran. So next time, when u make Pulpkin curry/ Mathanga Erisserry, do not discard the peel. Slice it thin and add onion, coconut to it and there you get the best thoran in the world.
Pumpkin peel/ Mathanga Tholi: 2 cups sliced thin
Onion: 1 diced
Coconut grated: 1 cup
Turmeric powder; 1/2 tsp
Salt: as needed
Coconut Oil: 1 tbsp
Mustard; 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves: 3 sprigs
Dried red chilly: 2
Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard, curry leaves and dried red chilly.
Mix in the sliced peels, onion diced, coconut, turmeric and salt.
Stir till everything is properly mixed
Add 1/4 cup water and let it cook on low flame.
Let it cook and all the water evaporate.
Serve warm with rice.
