Vegetable Stew

Vegetable stew is commonly eaten in South India with Appams or Iddiappams. Its a whole meal with a combination of colourful vegetables cooked in coconut milk. The thick, rich, creamy stew can also be eaten with boiled rice. Most of the vegetables used in this stew are always available in the fridge. easy to cook & I love the aromatic flavour & the creamy taste. I prepared it when my in-laws had come over and they loved it! I bought the ready to make Iddiappams.
