Vegetable Stew is popularly also called as Veg Ishtu in Kerala and is one of the favourite breakfast item served with appam, iddiappam and its one of the simplest curry with coconut milk and mixed vegetables. There are different ways of making this ishtu and you can choose to add any veggie combination in it. Here I have used the mostly known ones. You totally need to give it a try if you have never eaten it before. It is completely vegan and glutenfree Indian curry that you cannot miss trying.
