4 bean curry recipe
Tinned 4 Bean Curry

My lovely wife and I knocked this 4 bean curry together in 15 mins, whilst we were busy cooking Sunday lunch. It was supposed to be an accompaniment, but we ended up eating it with fresh bread and butter, as a starter whilst we were cooking. This is what life is about.

  • Gorimas Extra Special Durban Masala
  • 2 Teaspoons Garam Masala
  • 1/2 Fenugreek Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds
  • Garlic & Ginger to taste
  • Curry Leaves

1. Gently heat your oil & add your mustard seeds, garam masala & fenugreek powder. (make sure not to burn)
2. Add your onion, stir & then your garlic & ginger paste & saute until soft.
3. Add your Masala/Curry Powder and saute until fragrant (make sure not to burn)
