Potato Stew

Potato stew with Appam makes yummy breakfast or dinner. My family like Appam very much. Even if someone give me appam everyday i can eat it. Appam goes very well with any non veg curries like egg curry, mutton or chicken curry.

For a change from non veg curries i tried this simple potato stew which goes very well with appams. I'm a spice lover and i cant eat anything which is not spicy. But this stew is simply tasty with less spice in it. You can add spice if you want. But believe me, it taste good with just green chillies and onions.

Here come the recipe of this simple stew.

You will need:

  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 large red onion
  • 5 green chillies
  • 3 to 5 garlic pods
  • salt for taste
  • 1½ cups of thick coconut milk

For seasoning:
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp urad dal
  • 1 small onion(shallot) cut into small pieces
  • few curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp oil . preferably coconut oil

Step 1:

Peel the potatoes and cut into bite size pieces. Boil it in 3 to 4 cups of water until it become soft.

Step 2:

Peel the onion and cut into small squares. When the potatoes gets 80% cooked, add the chopped onion along with the green chillies and the garlic pods.

Step 3:

At this stage you can add more water if the vegetables are not fully cooked yet. If the vegetables are fully cooked add the thick coconut milk and switch of the stove . Now stir the coconut milk along with the potatoes.

Step 4:

Now for seasoning add oil in a frying pan and allow it to heat. When it turns hot add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and the urad dal one after the other. When it splutters add the finely chopped onion and allow it to brown. Now add the curry leaves and add the potato stew to this. Switch off the stove.

Enjoy this with Appam .Easy recipe on a busy day. Taste very good too.
