Vegetable Stew

Vegetable Stew

One of the high rich protein food I ever tasted in my life. Hats off to my grandma for such an awesome delicious dish in my childhood days. This dish is a well combination with  all kinds Bread, Rice Puttu and Pathiri/Chappathi.

A vegetable stew is a combination of vegetable food ingredients that have been cooked in liquid and served in the resultant gravy. Ingredients in a stew can include any combination of vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, onions, beans and green peas. A mix of water and coconut milk can be used as the stew-cooking liquid, seasoning and flavourings may also be added. Stews are typically cooked at a relatively low temperature (simmered, not boiled), allowing flavours to mingle in a deep bottom vessel.
