It’s quite likely that the word "ishtew" evolved from the Hindi pronunciation of "stew". Well whatever the story behind this dish with that very name, all we can say about it is that its USPs are its wholesome flavour and its simplicity.

Yes, Ishtew combines the goodness of a whole lot of vegetables with the decadence of coconut milk, and the delicate flavours of the spices used. A vegetable stew that embraces the flavours of its ingredients totally, but what hits your senses is the rich sweet creaminess of coconut milk against the subtle hotness from the spices, making it even more delightful to savour.

Also a versatile dish, Ishtew can easily be your comfort food or an integral part of your weekend feast. And should you want to try it, here’s the recipe.
