"This is a traditional breakfast served in many Arabic countries. It can also be eaten for lunch or dinner in case you don't have any meat on hand, as the beans are full of protein and fiber! Very delicious! Serve and eat the traditional way, by grabbing it with pita bread."

Stir in the jalapeno pepper; cook and stir until softened, about 5 more minutes. Mix in tomato and tomato paste; stir to combine with the onion and jalapeno pepper. Pour in the kidney beans with their liquid; stir in the cumin and curry powder. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the beans are hot and the sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes.

Make these just as recipe calls. Love them. Make them once a week now. They are spicy so if you can't handle it hot reduce the curry.

I boosted spices to T's, used 3 tomatoes, from dried beans, no s&p, squirt of ketchup (out of paste), added 4 cloves garlic. Ate over garlic naan. We are on a bean kick and this fits right in.
