This is a FABULOUS recipe Toni - my mum in particular LOVED this, she is a vegetarian and has copied this recipe! I will not pretend that it does take some time to prepare all the vegetables, but the result was amazing - and mum and I had a bottle of wine to keep us company! We lived in Africa for many years and were thrilled to stumble across this VERY authentic African bean recipe - thanks so much! I used olive oil instead of rape/canola oil - everything else was as posted. Made for ZWT4 - photos to follow, still on my camera! Thanks Toni-kins! FT:-)

Did tone this down a bit by using the mildest chili pepper I could find, but other than that, all the ingredients were used as listed! Served it with a South American chicken dish I'd prepared & it was a success! Really enjoyed this flavorful bean dish! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Africa with the Zaar World Tour 4]

123 Hit Wonders 2007 ~ We really enjoyed this! Used garam masala in place of masala leaves, used a green pepper only and a red onion. I also fried the peppers with the onions so that they would be cooked properly. The small amount of peppers adds a nice little zing! A very colourful dish with wonderful flavors. Served with Amish Baked Chicken and Cheesy Orzo. Thanks toni!

This was the perfect dish for my post-Xmas beans and veg stint.. I made no changes except that I chose the curry powder option for 50g leaves masala. This I enjoyed as a dinner, hot, in a deep bowl, with a splodge of thick greek yoghurt on top. Unreal! ( Made for Zaar Tag ) P.S. how quick is this to whip up too?! : )
