Sweet Bean Curry Recipe


40-gram red kidney beans, soaked overnight
A knob of butter
½ small onion, sliced
½ small apple, cored and chopped
40-gram mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 ½ teaspoon unbleached flour
²/₃ cup bean stock or bean stock and water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon chutney

Method of preparation

Drain the beans, place in a pan and cover with cold water.
Bring to boil and boil vigorously for 10-15 minutes, then lower the heat and boil for about 1 hour, until the beans are tender but still whole. Drain and set aside.
Melt the butter in a pan and cook the onion until it is very brown, stirring occasionally.
Add the apple and mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the curry powder and flour and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring continuously.
Gradually add the bean stock or bean stock and water and stir until smooth.
Add the seasoning, lemon juice, chutney, raisins, and cooked beans and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Just before serving, add the creamed coconut and stir until dissolved.
Serve hot, garnished with a fresh herb sprig and egg quarters.

Absolutely love this recipe! It's great on its own, it's so cheap to make and fills you up! Will definitely be making again.
