VEGETABLE STEW



INGREDIENTS
Potato-2 medium size diced
carrot- 2 nos diced small
onion-1 medium size,coarsely chopped
tomato-1 coarsely diced
cinnamon stick-1
curry leaves-from 1 sprig
ginger-1 tsp, freshly grated
cashew nuts-handful
green chillies- 3 nos slit
coconut milk-1/2 can
salt to taste
METHOD
In a vessel cook the potatoes and carrot in some water along with cashews, curry leaves,ginger,green chillies ,cinnamon stick and some salt.In a pan fry the onions and the tomatoes separately till the raw smell goes and grind it to a smooth paste .Add it to the cooked potatoes and carrots ans stir well.When it starts to boil simmer it down and add the coconut milk.Do not close the vessel at this point as the coconut milk will curdle.Let it cook in a low flame for another 5 mins.Adjust salt to taste.
NOTE:-If u r using fresh coconut milk then u will need 1 cup thick milk and 1/2 cup of thin milk.The canned ones are very concentrated so 1/4 cup will be sufficient otherwise they will overpower the taste of the spice and vegtables.
serve it hot with aappams or bread.
