  • Stir onion and bay leaf into the pot; cook, stirring constantly, until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add potato, carrot, green chile peppers, green beans, and salt. Stir in ground black peppers and turmeric. Cook, covered, for 3 minutes.

  • Stir chicken into the pot until evenly mixed, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in enough water to cover the chicken. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook until chicken is tender, about 30 minutes.

  • Stir coconut milk and green peas gently into the pot. Cook until heated through but not boiling, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If using chicken legs, score them to absorb the flavors.

You can replace the chicken in this recipe with mutton, and a you'll get a brilliant mutton stew.
