Potato Stew


Boiled Potatoes – 5 medium

Coconut oil – 1 tbsp

Peppercorns – 1/4 tsp

Cardamom – 2

Cinnamon – 1″ piece

Cloves – 3

Ginger – 1″ piece chopped

Onion – 1 sliced

Green chillies – 3 slit

Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Thin coconut milk – 11/2 cup

Salt – to taste

Sugar – 1/2 tsp

Thick coconut milk – 1/2 cup


Remove the skin of the potatoes and mash them into big chunks.  Heat oil in a non-stick pan and splutter peppercorns.  Add the whole spices, followed by ginger, onions, green chillies and curry leaves.  Fry till the onions turn light brown.  Add the thin coconut milk, potatoes, sugar and salt.  Simmer for 5 minutes and then add the thick coconut milk.  Mix well and switch off the flame before it starts to boil.  Serve yummy ‘Potato Stew’ as a side dish for ‘Onam Sadya’.  It goes well with appam, idiyappam and bread as well.  Cheers!
