Recipe's preparation

    Bean Curry
  1. Place ginger (if using) and garlic in thermomix, chop 5 seconds, speed 9.

  2. Add onion and chop 5 seconds speed 7. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

  3. Add the oil and cook 3 minutes varoma temperature speed 1.

  4. Add the spices and cook 2 minutes, varoma temperature, speed 1.

  5. Add the remaining ingredients and cook 20 minutes, 100 degrees, reverse, speed 1. 

  6. Serve on rice with a dollop of Greek yoghurt


This is the meal I make when food is getting low in our house. Most of the ingredients are pantry items and I make sure I always have them on standby for just those occasions. My kids like it better without the ginger and I only put in one teaspoon of curry powder.

Bean Curry

    Yum! Not a hot or spicy curry. I used one can 4 bean mix, one can borlotti beans and tin of peeled tomatoes.I added some salt and a handful of sultanas at the end of cooking and also a small packet of Ready rice noodles to absorb a bit of the juice as it was quite a wet mix. Served in a bowl with papadums (no extra rice)

    We use this recipe so often we love it! Tonight's variation was 85grams of dates instead of the fruit chutney as we had run out. I think I preferred it with the dates too!

    Great idea Sarah Jane. I have added an extra tin of tomatoes when there are more people  but hadn't thought of chick peas. Glad you like the bean curry. Despite all the glamorous new recipes I cook, it's still my kids favourite.
