Kerala Style Vegetable Stew / Mixed Vegetable Stew / Vegetable Ishtew - Sidedish for Aapam

I was so much inspired to do coconut milk aapam as soon as I saw that it one of the blog. Since srivalli has announced Thali Mela. I thought to a kerala breakfast style thali. I planned to put coconut milk aapam along with a nadan egg curry and this yummy vegetable stew..Sounds good right..You have to wait to taste this yummy combo..You will be in heaven..The master piece in this thali is the vegetable stew…It is so simple to make, but each mouthful is full of coconut goodness..This is a perfect combo with aapam, but you can serve it with plain white rice too along with any spicy curry..

I hope you will love this a lot like me and waiting to hear from you..
