Baked Beans Curry

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 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.

Give it a go hun.........i like beans plan but with the English breakie thing.halal sasauges,eggs, mushrooms, grilled tom's no fried bread but i like toast.
If i have beans on toast rarely alone i normally mix it with a tin of sapgetti in tomato sauce and a knob of butter and on buttered toast yum. This is the defo Brit in me.

I have never seen this before (although a friend has baked beans and onions), It does look good. I'd still eat mine with chips though.

Assalaamu alaikum,

Yum... great idea for zazzing up baked beans. When baked beans were really cheap in the UK... remember the baked bean wars when the supermarkets sold them for 3p a tin?... dh used to make Algerian loobia using them.\ Very versatile and satisfying! Can't believe you don't like them Ines! Umm Ibrahim
