This recipe is from Anupama Puranik who sent me the entire recipe as an entry along with the photo. Here is Anupama’s comfort food “RICH VEGETABLE AND CHICKEN STEW WITH CRISPY TOAST” and her detailed instructions on how to prepare the stew.

  • 2 Boneless Breasts of Chicken cooked and coarsely shredded
  • 3-4 cups Chicken Stock (Water in which you have cooked the chicken)
  • 2 med carrots cut into chunks
  • 1 med Onion also cut into chunks
  • 3/4 florets of Cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 1/2 cup french beans
  • 4-5 mushrooms thickly sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic slightly crushed
  • 1 tspn soy sauce
  • 1 tspn white vinegar
  • 1 tblspn of cornflour mixed in a little cold water.
  • 2-3 tblspns oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the garlic and onions until soft and slightly browned.
  • Add to this all the vegetables and and mushrooms and saute these until cooked but still firm.
  • Now add the cooked chicken and the chicken stock and let it boil.
  • After it has boiled for a few minutes let it simmer. While it simmers add the soy sauce ,vinegar, salt and pepper. Also pour in the cornflour mixture.(the amount of cornflour can be adjusted according to how thick you want the stew).
