Addictive Bean Curry

This bean curry really is addictive, and not too hot.  Here is the original recipe.

    1 tablespoon oil
    1 teaspoon mustard seeds
    1 teaspoon cumin seeds
    1 large onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon grated/chopped gingerroot
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 large (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
    2 cans (19 oz each) kidney beans (or mixed beans or other beans)
    1 teaspoon (or more!) curry paste
    salt to taste

Here's what I did.

Prepare kidney beans by the 90 Minute no-soak bean method.  After they are finished baking in the oven (there was still  liquid in my cast iron pan) I added the can of diced tomatoes with garlic, a generous squirt of brown mustard in place of the mustard seeds, lots of garlic and onion powder (I didn't have an onion on hand), ginger powder, a small amount of the curry paste (you can obviously add more if you like), some mild curry powder, and salt.  I omitted the oil.

I put it back in the oven for about 20-30 more minutes (again, making sure I had lots of liquid in the pan).

It would be great alone, over rice, noodles or steamed broccoli, or with pita bread.

Great if you are going meatless for the Nativity Fast.

Did you dh find this addictive as well? If so, you have a nice meal you can serve on cold dreary days to warm you. Sounds like a good one!

He really liked it. I did sneak some meat into his, though. But I think he would have liked it even without the meat.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
