Every year for Good Friday my mom made several different Delicious Veg dishes. This recipe brings back memories of mom’s cooking, dad and brothers spontaneously inviting neighbours and friends to join us for a meal. I am remembering my mom’s Erissery now, my favourite. That is a recipe for another time!!
