Chakalaka

A new series of Blog Hop Wednesday starts today. A new set of people to cook with. It really feels good. Im paired with Priya of Tasty Curry Leaf and when I went through her blog, I really could'nt control the number of bookmarked recipes. I was paired with Priya Sreeram and while I started cooking, I chose the wrong Blog.  I hopped onto TastyCurryLeaf. I was literally hooked onto her site for hours. But later CurryLeaf commented on my post saying I had cooked from the wrong blog. I saw this late in the night and tried a 7 Cup Cake from Priya's Blog and posted it ontime for the Blog Hop.
Now, the recipe I chose from CurryLeaf is Chakala. Its a South African relish served with Pap. Its very simple to make and both kidney beans and baked beans being my favorites I chose this recipe. This is very similar to rajma masala.

Ingredients
Kidney Beans/Baked Beans - 1 cup
Onion - 2
Tomato - 2
Bell Pepper - 1
Ginger - Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Curry Powder - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Method
Soak kidney beans overnight and pressure cook till soft and mushy.
Heat oil, saute onions till golden. Add bell peppers, tomato and cook till pulpy.
Add salt, curry powder, cooked kidney beans and some water if needed. Cook on low heat till a gravy consistency is reached.
Serve hot with rice or chapathi

Bon Appetit!!
Rudra
