Stew is a traditional syrian christain Keralan way of cooking meat or veg in coconut milk. This is unlike the English non-spicy stews. Coconut milk is the new health buzz and this reciep is a really good way to have coconut milk. Traditionally served with appam, idiyappam or puttu, this goes very well with fresh baked bread.

A few things before we start:

  • Use mutton pieces with bone for a tastier and richer stew.
  • I used new potatooes as they have better starch than the waxy big potatoes.
  • Add more green chilly or pepepr powder if you like a spicy kick.
  • I like my stew a light greeney-cream in colour. But some prefer a yellow coloured stew. If you are one of them then add a tsp of turmeric powder to the cooking mix.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
