Butter beans curry

This is a dish best enjoyed with roti, where you can use the roti to wipe up the gravy.

You can if you want to use a tin of plain butter beans, but I find it tastes better and there are way more loads of gravy if you use the curried tin of butter beans.



  • 1 x onion, chopped.
  • salt to taste.
  • a few curry leaves.
  • 1 x 420g tin Curried flavoured butter beans.
  • 1/2 x tsp dhania powder.
  • 1/2 x tsp jeera powder.
  • 1/4 x tsp tumeric powder.
  • 1 x tsp Bombay delight masala.


  • Heat some oil in a pot, add the onions and curry leaves.
  • Saute till the onions are transparent.
  • Add the spices and salt and allow to dry for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add a cup of water and mix well.
  • Allow the water mixture to come to a boil.
  • Add the tin of butter beans and the gravy from the tin.
  • Cover and allow to cook on a medium heat till the gravy thickens.
