An easy-to-prepare Kidney Bean Curry

One of the things many of us have been doing more of during this pandemic is cooking. But, if you want to opt-out of queuing to get your food shop for an extra day, it’s always handy to have a recipe that can be made using the bulk of what we have in our cupboards already. This Kidney Bean Curry (or Rajma Masala) by award-winning food stylist Shilpa Razniewska of @Soulful_and_Healthy  is utterly delicious, and so simple to prepare


What you need:

  • 1 tin kidney beans
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes (or you can use freshly chopped)
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp ginger and garlic paste
  • 1 clove of garlic finely grated
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil or vegetable oil (or use 1 tsp butter and 1 tsp oil)
  • Fresh coriander leaves chopped (optional)
  • Cooked basmati rice to serve
  • Salt to taste

 

How to prepare:

  1. In a non-stick pan, add the oil or butter, once the oil is hot (medium heat), add the onion and saute? for two mins until brown but not burnt.
  2. Add the ginger and garlic paste and fry for 30 seconds. (Skip this if using powdered ginger and garlic, you can add it along with the rest of the spices)
  3. Add the chopped or tinned tomatoes, let the tomatoes cook for about 5 mins, then add the kidney beans with all the spices, stir well and let it cook for another 2 to 3 mins.
  4. Garnish with chopped coriander and serve with basmati rice.
