Black Beans Curry  

Thursday, January 29, 2009

I had a lot of black beans and wanted to prepare some curry for chapati with it. Usually I prepare sundal with it, for that matter with all the beans. With curry in mind, I added all the masala powders I had. Turned out to be good.


Black beans - 1 cup
Onion (small) - 1
Tomato - 2
Green chillies - 2
Cardamom - 2
Bay leaves - 2
Cinnamon - 2
Curry leaves - 5
Ginger - 1 inch
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Chopped cilantro - 2 tbsp


1. Soak the beans overnight and pressure cook it with 2 cups of water and keep aside.

2. In a pan, heat 6tsp of oil and add cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves and curry leaves. Then add green chillies, grated ginger and chopped onion.

2. After onion has become golden brown color, add chopped tomatoes and all the spice powders with salt.

3. After 10 minutes of continuous stirring and boiling, add cooked beans with the liquid.

4. Boil the curry for 5 minutes and garnish with chopped cilantro.

5. Black beans curry can be served with chapathi or naan.
