veg stewvegetable stew recipe | veg stew | how to make kerala style vegetable stew with step by step photo and video recipe. kerala cuisine is famous for it coastal and seafood recipes which are predominately prepared with coconut flavour. the recipes are generally prepared with freshly grated coconut masala or with coconut milk. one such popular creamy kerala style curry is a vegetable stew with choice veggies.

i have and always will be a huge fan of malabar parotta and veg kurma combination. as a matter of fact, it is one of the delicacies and a popular snack in udupi and mangalore region. the reason i am highlighting this because veg kurma is very similar to veg stew recipe and the main difference i can see is the usage of coconut masala vs coconut milk. in other words, kurma is made with freshly grated green coloured coconut masala with coriander, chilies and dry spices. whereas, in the vegetable stew recipe, coconut extract or milk is added on top of the curry. the milk provides more creaminess to the curry as compared to former and that is main reason i prefer kurma recipe rather than stew recipe. but that is my personal choice and many prefer creamy way especially in kerala.

furthermore, i would like to highlight few tips and variation to this creamy vegetable stew recipe. firstly, the coconut milk can be either freshly prepared at home by grinding coconut or you can store bought coconut cream. i have used the store bought coconut cream can and i have added water to make it less creamy. secondly, adding vegetables is completely open-ended and you can explore it with your choice. apart from the veggies i have added, you can add brocolli, snow pea, tindora, yam and beetroot etc. lastly, some prefer red coloured veg stew recipe, and to achieve the same you can add turmeric and chilli powder while sauteing the veggies. make sure to skip the green chillies if you are adding red chilli powder.
