Vegetable stew for idiyappam.

veg stew for idiappam I always wanted to have this when I saw them in menu cards in the Indian restaurants. But my hubby used to dismiss the dish saying that I won't like it. So this way I had never tasted until my last trip to chennai when my sister in law ordered it for a breakfast. And I simply loved it. Since then I always wanted to try this combination at home. But I never managed to buy the press for idiyappam. But finally , I found a instant idiyappam packet at the Indian stores and bought it immediately.
So I made this combination for a sunday brunch. We all loved it. It was delicious and quite filling too.
The idiyappam had to be kept in a bowl containing boiling water(salt added) and closed with a lid for few minutes. The water has to be drained. And the idiyappam is ready.

For the vegetable stew-

Ingredients-
Mixed Vegetables - chopped in cubes- (potatoes,carrots,cauliflower,peas and french beans.)
coriander seeds- 1tbspn
Jeera- 1tsp
Cinnamon stick- 1inch
Bay leaves- 1
Cloves-2
Til-1tsp
poppy seeds-1tsp
Dried red chillies-4
Coconut milk- 100ml
Oil- 1tsp

Method-
Cook the vegetables in boiling water adding salt and turmeric powder, till it become soft. Meanwhile, add oil in a pan. Add jeera, red chillies,coriander seeds, spices. Fry till it turns to a slight brown colour. Grind it to a smooth powder. Add this mixture/ masala to the cooked vegetables and mix well. Cook for another 5 minutes. Then add the coconut milk and keep for another 2 minutes. Don't cook for a long time after adding coconut milk.
