Vegetable Stew.

This is a mildly flavoured vegetables curry from kerala,which is a combination of vegetables and creamy coconut milk based curry.

Popularly served with malabar parotta or appam, but can also be served with idiyappam or oghee rice.

I have used readymade coconut milk available in tetra pack instead freshly squeezed coconut milk can also be used. You can add any vegetable of your choice to this dish,apart from the ones I have used you can add brocolli, snow pea, tindora, yam and, cauliflower, beetroot,sweet potato,etc.
