Chicken Stew And Palappam | Easter Special Recipes

Chicken Stew and Palappam(Vellayappam)

Chicken stew and Palappam is one of the most favorite dishes of all Keralites. For me, I like to eat palappam with Vegetable Stew and Kerala Kadala Curry. Chicken stew is a creamy gravy  and great with Palappam and white breads. Easter is incomplete without Chicken stew and palappam., so here is a simple Easter recipe, Happy Easter to all Sankeerthasnam readers.
