Vegetable Stew

I love mixed vegetable gravies. I have quite a few variations of mixed vegetable gravies that I dish up from time to time. Here is my version of the Vegetable Stew.

Carrots (diced) - 1/2 cup
Beans (chopped) - 1/2 cup
Potatoes (diced) - 1/2 cup
Grean Peas - 1/2 cup
Onions (large) - 1 (sliced lengthwise)
Green Chillies (sliced lengthwise) - 2
Salt - to taste
Ginger paste - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 pinch
Oil - 1 tbsp
Coconut milk - 1 cup
Coriander leaves - for garnishing

Heat the oil in a cooker vessel. Add the sliced onions and fry for a few minutes until pink. Add ginger paste, green chillies and garam masala and fry for a few seconds. Add all the vegetables and continue frying until the raw smell is gone and there is good aroma. Add very little water and cook the vegetables until soft. Add the coconut milk and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for a few minutes and turn off the flame. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Chapatis or Appam.

Verdict: This one is a winner every single time at home. You cannot go wrong with this simple yet tasty dish.
