Sugar Bean Curry

Print Recipe
Red speckled beans, also known as sugar beans in some regions, are beans with a creamy texture and a mildly sweet flavor.
Packed with proteins and rich in flavor, this curry is a popular dish in Durban, especially when served in a Bunny Chow but also just as good with roti, on rice, with buttered bread or even naan.

The Curry Gravy

  • 100 ml Sunflower Oil
  • 1 sprig Curry Leaves
  • 2 Green Chillies Optional
  • 1 tsp Ginger & Garlic paste optional
  • 32 g Durban Curry Lovers all-in-one Masala I used half ORIGINAL BLEND & half CHICKEN
  • 2-3 Jam Tomatoes
  • 2 quartered Potatoes
  • 2 pinch Fresh Dhania

The Sugar Beans

  • 200 g Sugar Beans (red speckled beans)
  • Three times more water than beans in the pot


Cooking the beans

  • I cook for 20 mins in an electric pressure cooker, I leave to pressure release naturally. If I am going to be using the beans later, I remove from the water.
  • If you prefer to cook on the stove top, gently simmer until the beans are soft.
  • IMPORTANT: Retain the water to use when cooking the gravy

The Curry Gravy / Chutney

  • Add oil to the pot and heat
  • Add the curry leaves and allow to start to sizzle
  • Add the green chillies
  • Add the onions and saute until translucent
  • Add the garlic & ginger paste
  • Saute all above until onions start to go golden
  • Add the masla and mix well
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and some water if the pot is dry
  • Cook the tomatoes down, adding more water if required
  • Add the potatoes when you see the oil starting to separate from the gravy / chutney
  • Cover the potatoes with the retained water from the beans
  • When the potatoes are almost done, add the beans
  • Simmer on low until the potatoes are ready and the beans are soft, you should have a lovely thick gravy.
  • Garnish with fresh dhania
  • Serve & Enjoy
