Potato stew (ishtu)

A kerala dish, that goes well with appam and dosa. Very simple and easy to make. Ingredients

  • 2 big potatoes cut into medium size chunks
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 4-5 green chilles
  • I cup of coconut milk or coconut paste
  • Curry leaves
  • 2 inch of Ginger julienne
  • Salt to taste

Preparation Pressure-cook the potato chunks and chopped onions for 2-3 whistles. Heat a pan and add ½ tsp of oil and fry the ginger and add salt to it. Now pour the coconut milk or the coconut paste and add the cooked potatoes and onions. In case of Coconut milk cook it for 2-3 minutes and for coconut paste around 4-5 minutes and turn off the heat.

Garnish it with curry leaves, to add flavor can add ½ of coconut oil.

Tip : Do not mash the potato as you should bite those cooked soft potato pieces, while tasting this recipe.

Yummy!! this recipe reminds me of my mom's ishtu...We add only sliced onions, not finely chopped ones though... I like ishtu a lot more with idli than with appam, idiappam or puttu.

Good one! Keep such recipes coming. Thanks.
