Potato Stew is a very easy and simple dish of Kerala that goes well with Appam, Poori, Chapathi, Puttu, Idiyappam, or even with plain bread. Recently, I tasted this in my friend's house. She served this yummy potato stew with brown rice Idiyappam and it tasted divine.  My MIL used to grind the coconut and add the coconut paste to this stew, but my friend told that its conventional to use the coconut milk instead of grinding and adding the coconut paste. So, this time, I tried adding coconut milk and it turned out so yummy. Also, instead of adding only potato, I enriched with peas, carrot and beans to make it much healthier.
