Kerala Vegetable Stew is so easy to prepare and very delicious with very just few spices and veggies. You just need to temper and cook the veggies with coconut milk. You can have it with steamed rice, idiyappam or Appams. I have used store bought coconut milk. Usually I always have carrots, beans, potatoes , cauliflower and peas at home. So I have used those veggies. But you may use any veggies of your choice or use whatever you have in the fridge.
My whole family loves this vegetable stew. Last week it was raining. And we spent most of our time slurping soups. Apart from soups, we also made Kerala vegetable stew. Its nutritious, comforting and delicious. This vegetable stew is one of my favorite winter foods.
The Richness of Cashews and coconut milk is what makes Kerala Vegetable Stew the best ever.
