  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring kidney beans and their liquid to a boil. Stir in broccoli. Cook until broccoli is tender and most of the liquid has been reduced, about 10 minutes.
  3. Heat oil, ginger, cardamom, and mixed spice in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, mushrooms, and baby corn. Cook until tender.
  4. Mix kidney beans and broccoli into the skillet. Stir in potatoes. Season with soy sauce.

Great flavor, and what a combination of vegetables. Next time, I will add salt rather than soy sauce, so that the color stays bright.

I was making Tandoori Chicken and was looking for an accompaniment. This mix of vegetables looked really interesting, and the spices are close to a tandoori mix. I dislike the gooey liquid in canned beans, so I drained and rinsed the beans as I always. To replace that I dissolved some flour in chicken stock and added that. I used the Tandoori spices instead of these, didn't use soy, mixed in the chicken, and served on fresh baby spinach. Very nice!

I thought this was bland, and the color all cooked out, so there wasn't much to recommend it. Probably won't make again.
