I used to love the mutton version of this stew that my mom used to make. Once I felt like making the vegetable version, but couldn't reach my mom (timezone difference_) and I tried out your version. It was perfect and took me back to those good old days. Made it yesterday for guests again and turned out great! Thanks again!

Nabeela, yes you can cook that way too, but make sure that you cut the potatoes into small pieces , instead of big chunks and then cook the potatoes in thin coconut milk . If you are using freshly extracted coconut milk, you can use the third one , which is the thinnest one, for cooking the potatoes. For some reason, I feel cooking the potatoes separately gives better taste.But, yes, you can try

You can built a life around a potato. This looks so thick and creamy. You make me laugh, Shn, you and your husband jiving with the lingo in time for your marriage. Can you imagine what it's like for me going to an Indian grocery? (I've gotten better; I am fortified with glossaries and "study hall" before I leave the house.)

Hey Mishmash!

I'm speechless... and Jeaous
lol!
Can we trade blogs? ;)

I tried the stew and it came out well. Can I substitute chicken for the veggies next time?

Also, I recently moved to the US. And HOWEVER I try to make chicken - be it fry or curry - it still has a bad smell :((

I use utensils I bought from India and I dont use readymade masalas. :((

Love the story! :) I guess I'm lucky that everyone in my family speaks the same languages, so there's no miscommunication. We do have plenty of regional accents though. That soup is so completely appetizing. I'd love a bowl of it right now.

2007-11-02T08:33:00.000-05:00

hi everybody,
this regional variation of kerala food and language is one of my fav subjects ! in thrissur, we replace the 'sh' sound (as in 'she') with a mere 's', so it is 'istu.' i realised this word derived from the english stew quite late !
musical,your thrissur friend is right. in southern districts, dosa is thick, and eaten with quite heavy curries. on my first visit to kollam, i

2007-11-02T07:19:00.000-05:00

u know its always such a delight to visit your blog.Kerela has a whole cuisine of its own. I never even heard of so many things i see here on you blog , and come to think of it i'm Indian !!! haha but seriously the rest of the Indians just know a handful of the famous South dishes, the rest is still well guarded with u folks.
The potato stew looks fab.
