This easy-made Stew is best done with mushroom,capsicum, baby potato, caulilower florets or Egg plant but I tried it with Ladiesfingers-a second choice and yet this turned out yumm. This aromatically thick gravy will keep u going with its lingering taste and flavor the rest of the day. Try it at home to believe it. U can also use 1 tbsp coconutmilk powder dissolved in 50 ml instead of Peanut Butter and try this Stew. It can be done in 10 - 12 mins and serves 4 nos. Enjoy ur Meal with home-made Curry!. BonAppetit!.
