I really enjoyed this curry recipe for dinner tonight. Like the other reviewers, I thought it had the right amount of heat and flavor. I needed to use up tomatoes from the garden, so I used 14 oz of fresh tomatoes which worked out great. Also, I only had 1 can of red kidney beans so I used a can of white kidney beans (cannellini) as the other can. While this may have affected presentation (which didn't matter as I was the only one eating), it did not affect the taste. I served over basmati rice. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. Thanks!
I picked your recipe, because I liked the simple ingredient list! I thought the taste was great and simple to cook up. I did use pinto beans, because that's what I had on hand and added a little black pepper.
Thank You, for sharing a great simple recipe!
I thought this was excellent! Great amount of spice and flavor. I usually buy curry sauces from the market but think that will be coming to a stop. I substituted a serrano pepper for the chili pepper since that is what I had on hand. Turned out nice and spicy. Great recipe!
