Egg - Potato Stew / Kerala style

             If we are having Appam at home then the side dish undoubtedly is a Coconut milk based Stew, mostly it is a Vegetable stew or a creamy Chicken Stew .This time i made a Egg - Potato Stew , this curry reminds me of my childhood days, it has just been re - created from my memories. I tasted it from our neighbour Laila aunty's house, it was long time and i was too small back then to ask the ingredients nor how it was made.

As a kid i used to go play at her home with her kids during the evenings,  and we were served with home - made goodies most of the times. I have some very tasty memories about her, she made some super soft cakes and crunchy goodies, and we always got to taste them but she moved to another state in a few years time.
I always wanted to make this Egg stew but never gave it a try. Recently i made it ; the same way i made Chicken Stew with Potatoes and Carrots, but tasting this it surely did re-kindle my good old days, but i felt hers to be the BEST, well every other curry for that matter.
I made Appam / Pallappam to go with it, and  will surely post the recipe soon. If you want to try i have other Appam recipes too :  Kallappam  , No - Coconut Appam & Palada / Rice Crepes which would also be a good Combo with this dish
