    Seeprats's Note:

    Last night I was hunting for the perfect recipe for a traditional Keralite(south-Indian)beef stew and I just could'nt find a "perfect" one anywhere on Zaar or on the food blogs I usually depend on...By the end of it all, I had read through sooo many versions of this recipe, this is what I finally created...DH(whoz very picky about authenticity) gave it two thumbs up!!! Traditionally it is served with Appams but it goes very well with regular white bread too..... [You may substitute beef with lamb/chicken as per preferance]

      LOVE IT!! I made it and even popped the potatoes in the pressure cooker with carrots and sweet red peppers. At the end I opened it put in the coconut milk and let it simmer just a bit.PERFECT!!!

      We made this tonight- but without a pressure cooker. We browned and cooked the meat (we used lamb) then, except for adding the potatoes, did everything you said up to step 7 We ooked the stew one hour at this stage. In step 8 we added the potatoes and cooked a further 10 minutes. This stew has amazing flavour and is quite easy to make (and would be much easier the second time). Thanks for posting.
