This beans curry of one of the best finds in this Culinary journey across the globe. It is quite different from our regular beans curry . It has a beautiful flavor and a nice texture from the powdered peanuts that are used as a garnish.

I made this curry along with the Sayur Bening Bayam | Indonesian Spinach, Carrot, and Tomato Soup. This curry goes well as a side dish along with steamed rice.

Note:

  • The original recipe suggested using cream of coconut, the one that you see on top of a can of coconut milk. Since I could not find it here, I ground a couple of spoons of coconut with a little water to a paste.
  • Sambal / red chili paste is to be added along the turmeric powder. I forgot to add it!Be sure to add it when you try this dish

Bon Appetit…
