Once you try this simple, rich and delicious recipe at home, you’ll change your method of cooking kidney beans forever! For this is one of my all-time favourite ways of enjoying them!
1 cup of dry kidney beans, washed and soaked overnight
2 cups of coconut milk
3 big fresh tomatoes, sliced
1 big onion chopped
3 gloves of garlic, minced
2 or more fresh green or red chilies, (Optional)
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder/curry powder
Salt and freshly grounded pepper to taste
Fresh chopped coriander for garnishing
Boil the soaked kidney beans until almost soft and tender, then drain and discard the water
Heat oil in a different pan, saute onions and stir until brown. Stir in garlic then add tomatoes. Lower heat to medium-low, and cover the pot. Simmer until the tomatoes soften.
Add turmeric powder/curry powder and stir for 30 seconds
Now add coconut milk and the kidney beans. Stir well all together and simmer till the beans start splitting
Adjust salt and pepper, chilies and garnish with fresh copped coriander
There you go! Serve hot with Chapati or Rice
Always use dry fresh beans, I wont recommend canned beans for this Recipe!
