    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Recently enjoyed my first meal at a local South African restaurant here in Brooklyn. There we enjoyed this fabulous side dish - a spicy revamped rendition of baked beans. Of course, this sent me in search of a recipe to prepare at home. Found this one on the Internet and plan to try it soon. The original called for three times the amount of oil but I plan to make it as presented.

      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!
