I would’ve never thought that the combination of coconut and curry flavors would pair so well together. This coconut curry stew is a great example to show that combining those two ingredients, the flavor ends up tasty. I don’t often cook with coconut milk, but when I feel like a meal that’s different in flavor from my typical everyday meals then this is my go to. This stew is very satisfying and paired with brown rice it will make a perfect meal. It’s also a perfect side dish or even a light dinner.
This recipe, like most of my recipes, is super easy to make but you will need a little time to let the stew simmer. The longer you let it sit the better it will taste. Feel free to make this recipe in a crockpot, which is probably what I will do next time I make it. Another thing I want to mention is the coconut milk used in this recipe. When available I use fresh young coconuts. I combine the coconut meat and water in a blender and create the most delicious milk. I love the fresh taste this gives. Sometimes it can be very inconvenient to cut/break the coconut and make the milk yourself, so canned coconut milk is another option.
