Potato Stew

Potato stew is a delicious dish and is a great accompaniment for Rotis, Appam or Idiyappam. Frequently made at our home during Noyambu days (Abstinance/ lent days), this is a real delight with mild, delightful flavours. I add some boiled eggs to add to the appeal on regular days and it is savored up within no time. Potatoes are very good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Magnesium etc and contributes to wonderful silky smooth skin apart from other health benefits. Well, I am not cooking up stories here, you can check the health benefits and be sure; It sure does wonders to your skin.

Potato s a main ingredient of all stew, as it is rich in Carbohydrates and balances the rich protein content in Mutton stew, Chicken stew or veal stew. It gives you the energy to kick start your day.

The bright white color of the stew gives it an instant appeal especially when you are trying to please your kids. So try this easy recipe to cook a perfect, tasty Potato Stew and enjoy with Appam.
