My absolute absolute favourite way to have these beans! They taste rich and delicious and go sooo beautifully with chapatis/parathas or mandazi/mahamri. They even taste fantastic over rice or with simple plain bread!!
1 cup of kidney beans, washed then soaked overnight
2 cups coconut milk (use extra if you want it more saucy)
3 big fresh tomatoes, sliced or chopped
1 big onion chopped
¼ tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. cumin powder
1 tsp. coriander powder
pinch of turmeric
chopped coriander for garnishing
1-2 green chilies (can be increased or omitted according to taste)
Boil the soaked kidney beans until almost tender, then drain and discard the water (or use it in soups, very nutritious).
Put the kidney beans back into the pan, add the coconut milk, chopped tomatoes, green chilies, chopped onions, spices and salt. Simmer together on low heat, giving it a stir every now and then, until the tomatoes and onions soften completely and the beans are completely soft.
You'll know the beans are ready when they start splitting. Adjust salt/chili and garnish with coriander, serve! :)
