Vegetable Stew in Coconut Milk

All things stewed, I love them, they are the ultimate comfort food. A simple vegetable stew in coconut milk is my go to recipe. Be it, as a side dish with neer dosa or with some plain or special jeera rice, this stew is my favourite. Some mixed vegetables like potato, carrot, beans and some soft green peas all stewed in a simple coconut milk based curry, ultimate!
Here I have used some simple whole garam masala like elaichi, laung, kali mirch and dalchini, all in very small amounts for a subtle fragrance. Vegetable stew in coconut milk surely does sound complicated and time consuming. But all it needs is a little preparation, chopping vegetables in my opinion is the biggest task in this recipe.

For vegetable stew in coconut milk I have used store bought organic coconut milk as I had run out of coconut to extract the milk. And sometimes I also use it for convenience! On that note, some more curry recipes to make your life convenient (at least taste-wise)! Paneer curries, peas kurma, veg kurma, seemebadanekayi saagu, bhindi ka salan etc.
