[recipe title=”Broad Bean Curry in Aubergine Sauce” servings=”1-2″ time=”1hr approx” difficulty=”easy” image=”” description=”A western bean making a delicious eastern curry, and this combo works.”]

* This dish is predominantly made with hyacinth bean but in my opinion any fresh beans works even fresh peas and in particular young french bean pods.
Tempering Ingredients
– 1tsp Black Mustard Seeds, a whole dried Red Chilli and a pinch of asafoetida.
– 2tbsp Sunflower oil.
