Kidney Beans Curry Ingredients

Boiled Beans      1 1/2 cup
Tomatoes           4 medium size
Onion                  2 medium size
Green chilies      4 small
Salt                       1 tsp
Water                   3 cups
Garlic                   5 cloves
Mint/Parsley      1 tbsp
Turmeric             1/4 tsp
Cooking oil         3 tbsp.


Add 3 tablespoons of cooking oil to a pan and add 2 medium-sized finely chopped onions. when the onions turn golden brown add 5 minced garlic cloves.

Stir them for a minute and add 4 medium-sized tomatoes. Adding tomato puree is the best practice for reducing cooking time and the smoothness of the gravy.

Add salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder. Now add 1/4 cup of water and let the mixture cook through and oil starts separating.

Then add 4 chopped small green chilies, mix, and add the boiled Kidney beans. I am using presoaked beans which I have cooked for 5 minutes in a pressure cooker.

Let the mixture cook for almost 3 minutes add then add 3 cups of water. when the water starts boiling lower the flame and let it simmer for 30 minutes, it will then thicken automatically, if not then mash some beans with the back of your spoon to thicken the gravy.

Top it with some freshly chopped mint/parsley /coriander whatever on hand and serve this deliciously yummy Kidney beans curry with rice or Naan/roti.
