2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 large carrot, diced
10 to 12 beans, cut length wise
2 to 3 green chillies, slit lengthwise
250 ml of coconut milk (homemade or ready can)
salt to taste
1 teaspoon of sugar
7 to 8 curry leaves
2 teaspoons coconut oil
To begin making the Kerala Style Vegetable Stew, we need to cut the vegetables in desired shapes, steam them and keep them ready.
Steam the potatoes, beans and carrots or any other vegetable of your choice and keep them aside.
In a heavy bottomed sauce pan; add in the cooked vegetables, the cococnut milk, curry leaves and green chillies. Stir well and bring the mixture to a brisk boil. Add in the salt and sugar and adjust to suit your taste.
Adjust gravy to get the right consistency by adding a little water if you want to make it little thinner. Make sure the gravy is not too watery. Finally add in the coconut oil and simmer for a few more minutes.
Turn off the heat, cover the pan and allow the Vegetable Stew to rest for about 10 minutes. This brings out the flavors from the curry leaves, green chillies and coconut milk. Transfer the Vegetable Stew to a serving bowl.
Serve the delicious flavorful Kerala Style Vegetable Stew along with Kerala Appams.
