Maharage ya nazi = Red kidney
beans with coconut cream
1 cup Red kidney beans, soaked over night
2 cups coconut cream (fresh if possible)
1 onion - large shredded bulb
2 tomatoes sliced in small pieces
1 teaspoon salt or less, for testing
2 green peppers (chilies)
Boil beans in 2 cups of water until half cooked, if
necessary add more water. Some beans are so hard that you
may have to add water 3 times. When half cooked, throw out
all water, wash under running cold water and put on low
fire. Add all other ingredients now, i.e. coconut cream,
onion, tomato, green pepper and salt.
Stir occasionally with wooden spoon. Use knife or fork,
poke the beans to check for softness in order to a certain
level of cooking. Your best indicator should be when the
beans start to split.
Eaten with white rice, 'Ugali' or bread like curry/gravy.
