Mutton/Chicken and Vegetable Stew

Kerala Chicken, Mutton or Vegetable Stew for AppamsA recipe from Kerala
If you live in Bangalore, you must have definitely eaten the mutton stew with appams at Coconut Grove. I like their Kerala stews over the other restaurants because its got such a delicate flavour. If you don't live in Bangalore, here's how you can easily make this delicious stew at home.

700 grams mutton cut into small pieces/ 1 chicken cut into small pieces
3 tablespoons oil
3 potatoes quartered
200 grams green beans
200 grams carrots chopped
1 cup sliced onions
1 tablespoon garlic sliced thin
1 tablespoon ginger sliced thin
6 green chillies, slit
2 " piece of cinnamon
6 cloves
4 green cardamom
1 tablespoon pepper corns
6-8 curry leaves
2 tablespoons vinegar
salt to taste
2 cups think coconut milk
1 cup thick coconut milk

1. Heat the oil, add onion, ginger, garlic, green chillies, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, pepper, and curry leaves. Add the meat/ chicken and fry well. Cover and cook for 20 minutes. For the mutton- cook in pressure cooker and cook for 2 whistles on a high flame. You can add 1/2 cup of hot water to the masala if pressuring the meat.
2. Add vinegar, salt and the thin coconut milk.
3. Add the potatoes, carrots and beans.
4. Cook till vegetables are done and meat tender.
5. Add thick coconut milk.

Serve hot with appams or plain boiled rice!

All the recipes look so mouth-watering, can't tell which to try first! The Mutton/Chicken Stew I think, as it is milder spiced and the children would love it. Thank you, Ria!

This is a lovely blog!
