Stew is a goan traditional dish, it is nothing but veggies & meat are is boil separately, and then incorporated well with spices, it is a side dish of the family for feasts or special occasions. It does have many steps but it is the only dish you need to cook as it is an entire meal in a bowl.
Stew there are various recipe some add milk, while cooking and some add three meat that is pork, beef and chicken, some use only beef & chicken as well, even some use corn flour dilute with water and add for creamy texture but I never tried.
Well today I share today my mum recipe which i relish when I was a kids, and she doesn’t use milk, and when there was feast or any function my mum use to cook it a day ahead, where she learn from her mum, she believe that it taste better than same day cook.
This is a soul food where you can relish every bit, with the spices cooked well with each veggies and meat, I personally love the tantalising aroma, and now my kids relish my traditional goan food glad they just love every bit.
