Kerala Chicken Stew

Kerala style chicken stew is very popular and a great accompaniment with appam. It is loved in several parts of Kerala as a breakfast recipe. It is made with coconut milk and had a delicate flavor and great taste.

Here are the ingredients...

Chicken pieces- 500 grams
Potatoes- 1 cup
Carrot- 1/2 cup
Onions sliced- 1/2 cup
ginger and garlic- 3 tsp
green chilly- 2
Cinnamon- 2-3 pieces
Cardamon - 3
fennel 1/2 tsp
bay leaf - 1
Pepper crushed - 1 1/2 tsp
Thick coconut milk- 1 cup
curry leaves and coriander leaves
water - 1 cup
salt to taste
Coconut oil - 3 tsp

Cut chicken into pieces, peel potatoes and carrots and also cut it into cubes.

Heat oil in a pan ( you may also use a pressure cooker) and drop in the whole spices and allow it to get roasted. Now add chopped garlic and ginger and fry them a bit. Saute onions and green chillies till the onions are slightly fried. Now add in a bit of fennel powder, salt and pepper and the chicken pieces and saute for a few seconds. Now add potatoes and carrots and water and close the pan with a lid. Cook for 12- 15 minutes in medium heat till the potatoes can be mashed up a bit and the chicken cooked.

Pour in the coconut milk and a little bit of coconut oil ( this is optional) and stir well. Allow this to get a boil but not rolling boil and garnish with coriander leaves.
