This is a dish you Brit's can relate to. When presented with a tin of baked beans in Algeria by a good oldie Irish friend and i told her what i shall make with them to savour the tin as they are like gold out there for the Brit's of course. She told me it was like a crime.i reminded her my pallet was not so bland and i will enjoy them more this way.
The history of this dish goes for me anyhow.......one of the few memories i have of my daddy. Both of my parents worked full time when i was growing up. Dad worked nights and mum days some days when mum had not been super organised and left lunch or tea to be heated up by daddy for us. He would some times whip this up and it tasted great, he would roll out the biggest chapatti's you ever saw that only half would fill you up.
It's so quick and easy
sweat some onions cut into slices.......add some chopped fresh chili............add the tin of beans ........add the powdered spices salt, garm masla and cumin. Mix well. Add some chopped coriander and mint.serve with freshly made chapatti's.
