VEGETABLE STEW RECIPE FOR AAPAM
  Aapam is a South Indian breakfast recipe which I am trying for the first time at home, though my mom makes this at home. Though i am not a big fan of aapam i like the stew which they serve in Restaurants as an accompaniment for Aapam. Recently i came across the recipe of Vegetable stew in one of my  old cook book and i find it similar to one of my bookmarked recipes from here and I slightly altered the recipe to suit my own taste. Check out my Aapam recipe,without yeast, with step by step pictures and video.  I enjoyed the stew with rotis too.
I used potato and carrots. In the original recipe they used green peas also. since i don’t have green peas in hand i didn’t add.

POTATO 2
CARROT 1

GREEN CHILLI 3-4
WHOLE BLACK PEPPER 1/2 TSP
THIN COCONUT MILK 1 AND 1/41 CUP
THICK COCONUT MILK 1/2 CUP
CINNAMON 1 SMALL PIECE
GINGER A SMAL PIECE
GARLIC 2 PODS

VEG STEW

METHOD:

  • Boil the potatoes , peel the skin and cut them into cubes.
  • Chop the onions into thin slices.
  • Slit the green chillis into two.
  • Peel the skin of the carrots and chop into pieces.

  • Crush the ginger and garlic using a mortar and pestle.
  • In a pan, add oil and throw in the cloves, cinnamon, crushed ginger and garlic and green chilli.
  • Now add the onions and saute for few seconds in medium flame.
  • Add the whole pepper too.

  • Add the carrots and saute for a minute. Be careful not to burn.

  • Now add the thin coconut milk. I used the store bought coconut milk. As it was thick i diluted 1/4 of thick coconut by adding  1 cup of water.

  • If adding green peas add at this stage.
  • Let this boil in medium flame for about 10 to 12 minutes, till the carrots becomes soft. Add the cubed potatoes and add the thick coconut milk.

  • Mix well and bring it to a boil. Switch off the flame and add curry leaves and salt.

  • The gravy will be thick and if you want to make it thin add 1/2 cup of plain milk to this or if you want this to be very thick soak 7-8 pieces of cashew nuts in warm water and grind them into a smooth paste and add it in the last. Mix with the  thick coconut milk and add to the gravy.

stew
Note:

  1. Boiling potatoes before hand can be skipped and it can be peeled and cubed and added after adding onions along with carrots.
  2. Using Coconut oil will enhance the flavor and taste.
  3. I felt 4 green chillis was not enough as the coconut milk is slightly sweet.

What is the role of black pepper in this dish? Does it add more taste? Please clarify.
