Potato Stew

  1. Scrap the skin from potato and cut into medium size pieces. Cut the onion into small size pieces. Slit the green chillies slightly. Put all the above in a pressure cooker.  Add chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt.  Add enough water to cover the potato completely. Cook for two to three whistles.
  2. Open the cooker and keep it on the stove.  Add coconut milk and stir well. Keep the flame very low and allow to boil the stew.
  3. Serve with Appam or Idiyappam
