Jamaican Style Vegetarian Stew Recipe

The Jamaican Style Vegetarian Stew Recipe is a lovely spicy, soupy Caribbean stew that has mild spices and the rich flavors of coconut milk. The original recipe had meat and I substituted the meat with vegetables. I also noticed a very strong resemblance to the stew we have in Kerala.  Sweet Potatoes, Kaddu (Parangikai/ Pumpkin), Green zucchini, Ginger, Garlic, Thai Red chilli (Birds Eye Chilli), Coconut milk, Spinach Leaves (Palak), Salt and Pepper   1 Sweet Potatoes , peeled and diced 1 cup Kaddu (Parangikai/ Pumpkin) , peeled and diced 1 Green zucchini , diced 1 inch Ginger , grated 3 cloves Garlic , finely chopped 4 Thai Red chilli (Birds Eye Chilli) , sliced 400 ml Coconut milk 200 grams Spinach Leaves (Palak) , roughly chopped Salt and Pepper , to taste     20   40     To begin making the Jamaican Style Vegetarian Stew Recipe, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in large saucepan.Add the ginger, garlic and saute for a few seconds.
