Curried Butter Beans

This is a lovely quick and easy recipe which compliments so many meals.  I have been known to eat it as a meal on it’s own too.  I got this scrumity recipe from a friend who always makes these delicious beans when we get together for a braai.  The flavour combination of garlic, ginger and curry is always a winner and these beans remind me of the fillings we used to enjoy in roti’s and dhalpouri’s when we lived in Mauritius.

  1. I’ve had to do a catch up on your posts, we changed service providers and I lost my email, all sorted now and I have re-subscribed. I do this dish with a tin of baked beans, sometimes I put chopped bacon in as well, as you say great for a braai.

    • Oh how I wish I could send a case of beans over to you Tanya – imagine to postage on that parcel. Tell you what, I will just have to bring you a few tins personally. 🙂 Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo

  2. These look so much like baked beans – but the curry adds a totally different flavor dimension I imagine. I can always use more good bean recipes! 🙂

  3. I must be hungry, I’m madly pinning recipes I want to try and this was one of them:) Love that it’s so quick and easy to make and with ingredients I already have! And.. I’m on my own, so it would be the whole meal for me:D xx

  4. My Hubby is bowing to your excellence Mandy. He is a true bean lover and LOVES butter beans. He will love this recipe, I promise. Thank you!
