Mixed Vegetable & Coconut Milk Stew

Thursday, January 07, 2016

Alright, My first post for the year 2016. We got back from our Vacation during the beginning of the week. We had a great time & we are back refreshed and ready to take on what the year has to offer

I had to do a mandatory fridge cleaning before we headed off on a break. A quick stew that I made using the bits & odds from the fridge. A few unused Veggies & a can of partially used Coconut Milk. And this stew was made. Leftovers always lead to something tasty .. Everytime 

Babycorn Curry4 

  You Will Need:

  • 10-12 Baby Corn - Cut into Rounds of 2'inch thickness
  • 1 large Potato
  • 1 large Carrot 
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Zucchini
  • 100 ml Thick Coconut Milk
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1/2 tsp Kitchen King Masala
  • 2 tsp cooking oil

To Grind:
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 10 Cashew nuts
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander seeds
  • A pinch of turmeric
  • 5 cloves of Garlic
  • A small piece of Ginger

How To:

Dice Potato into cubes & immerse in cold water until you put it to use. Dice Carrots, Bell Pepper & Zucchini & set aside

Parboil Babycorn, Potatoes & Carrots to fasten the cooking process. I usually microwave them for about 6-8 minutes in salted water.

Roughly chop the onion & tomato. In a mixer, add all the ingredients listed under 'To Grind' list & add a tablespoon of water & grind into a smooth paste

In a cooking pan, heat oil. Add Bell Peppers & Zucchini. Sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the ground paste & a cup of water. Add the parboiled Babycorn, Potatoes & Carrots. Add half a teaspoon of kitchen king masala & stir. Let it come to a boil.  Add Coconut Milk & some salt. Add some water if you feel that the gravy is too thick. It will mostly likely need more water.  Gently simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Keep Stirring at regular intervals. 

Turn off the heat & serve warm with Roti/Phulka/Jeera Rice or Peas Pulao. It goes well with plain Basmati Rice too


You can pretty much use any vegetables that are available. Some of my other favourites that would probably go into the stew would be

  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Green Peas - Fresh/Frozen
  • Chayote
