Step 1

Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a pan and add 2 cloves, 1 bay leaf, ½ inch cinnamon stick and 1 cardamom pod. Add ½ inch ginger and 2 thinly sliced green chillies. Now add 1 small onion thinly sliced and saute it for 1-2 minutes.  

Step 2

To this, add 1 medium-sized potato cut into cubes, 1 carrot cut into cubes, ½ cup of chopped beans and ½ cup of frozen peas. Add a pinch of salt and cook on medium heat till the vegetables become soft and tender. 

Step 3

Add 1 cup of water to the pan and let it come to a boil. Close the lid of the pan and slow cook on low heat to make sure the vegetables are cooked properly.  Now add ¾  cup of coconut milk (thin consistency) and stir. 

Step 4

Once the vegetables are cooked, add ½ cup of coconut milk (thick consistency) and mix well.  Season the stew with some black pepper powder to enhance the flavour. Cook the stew for 1-2 minutes on low heat. 

Step 5

To prepare the tempering, simply fry some curry leaves in oil. Top the stew with the fried curry leaves and a few drops of coconut oil and serve it. You can also store this stew in an airtight container for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
