Red and green make this a festive dish. It can be a hot as you wish. . just add more chilli. The chicken stock can be replaced with a vegetable sauce for a vegetarian dish.

Wonderful! I halved the recipe and followed all the instructions. I needed to add an extra 1/2 cup of water for the beans since the original 1/2 cup didn't seem enough for the beans to cook in. I also simmered them covered. This spicy dish made the perfect side to rotis for a piquant dinner!
