You can parboil the vegetables and reduce the quantity of thin coconut milk as well as cooking time while cooking the par boiled vegetables. Cashew nuts are purely optional. I have not used cashew nuts in the above recipe. Cauliflower and green peas can also be added. Ginger is essential for the stew. Do not omit it. Coconut oil is generally used to make the stew. I use olive oil.
