Vegetable stew | Veg stew | Kerala style veg stew recipe, a very popular coconut milk-based vegetable gravy. Kerala veg stew recipe with step-by-step pictures.

Usually, the stew is paired with aapam , malabar parotta or idiyappam. Aapam and stew is a very popular South Indian breakfast combo. In Tamilnadu we make Mapillai sodhi, this one is very similar to that. But for sodhi we add cooked moong dal. Traditionally Veg stew is made using thin coconut milk and thick coconut milk. The veggies are cooked in thin coconut milk and finally the first milk, the thick one is added. Using homemade coconut milk is highly recommended but store bought one will also taste very nice.

Being a huge fan of Malabar parottas, I personally love to eat veg stew with Kerala parotta. Also, we make veg kurma with coconut milk and it tastes similar to this stew. Even this stew pairs well with nei choru | ghee rice and chapati too. Since we add all the veggies in this stew this is a healthy recipe too. I tasted this very long back in a friend’s place for the first time and loved it. Made few alterations to the recipe she shared, to suit my family’s tastebuds. I have tried this recipe at home many times and it’s a huge hit among my guests.
