Potato Stew Recipe - Kerala breakfast

Stews prepared in Kerala are mainly vegetables or any meat cooked in coconut milk. There are different variations. Some are prepared without any garam masalas. Here, I'm sharing you a recipe of Potato Stew, which calls for whole garam masalas.

Tips & Tricks:

1. I would suggest you to prepare this Potato stew in pressure cooker to get a creamier consistency if you are using raw potatoes. Otherwise, boiled potatoes will also do the job.

2. After the dish is ready, wait for 15 -20 minutes before serving. This will make the stew creamier.

Substitutions & Variations:

1. Using fresh coconut gives out the best result. If not, you can replace it by using ready made coconut powder.

2. For this recipe, I have used only potatoes. However, you can replace half the quantity of potatoes with peas, carrots and beans. 

Here's a link to How to extract coconut milk. Make sure to keep the coconut milk ready, before we begin with the recipe.
