Addictive Bean Curry

1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon grated/chopped ginger root
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 large (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
2 cans (19 oz each) kidney beans (or mixed beans or other beans)
1 teaspoon (or more!) curry paste
salt to taste

Heat oil in large pot over medium heat and stir fry the mustard and cumin seeds until they pop. Add onion, ginger, and garlic and stir fry until lightly colored. Add tomatoes with juice, beans (drained and rinsed), and 1 tsp curry paste (to start!). Simmer for about 20 minutes or until thick and saucy. Keep adding curry paste to taste during the cooking. Salt to taste. This is easy, healthy, and really addictive! Serve with rice, pita, toast, chapattis, naan, straight from the pot....

Serves: 6
