Cauliflower Coconut Milk Stew Recipe

The Cauliflower Coconut Milk Stew Recipe is different from a traditional stew that will be purely made with coconut milk or simply a spiced water. This stew is made with a combination of pureed tomatoes and coconut milk and mildly spiced with bay leaf and cardamom. The addition of tomatoes into the stew gives a light tart taste that blends well with a bread or even a bowl of rice.

Serve the Cauliflower Coconut Milk Stew along with a bowl of rice or a french bread for a weeknight dinner or even as a dish for parties. You can even serve it along with Kerala Appam for breakfast or a Sunday Brunch.
