"South Asian influenced beans with a kick. Great served over rice or in a tortilla as leftover burritos. Serve over rice (jasmine rice is my first choice). They come out really spicy, so add only as much spice as you're comfortable with." — SKAMP

This sounded interesting so thought I'd try it... I reduced the ginger to 2 Tbsp. To round this into a full meal, I added a bit of onion, a package of thawed frozen spinach, some mushrooms, and paper-thin carrot slices. It would be good with other veggies as well. I needed all the juice, so simmered it covered, and served over jasmine rice. It was delicious! Not at all too spicy, but I do like spicy things!
I thought there was way too much chili powder. I cannot taste the coconut or curry at all because the chili powder completely overwhelms the other flavors. I had to add Tabasco to give it some heat and flavor.
This is an excellent vegan dish. I ended up also adding carrots, chiles, onion, squash and mushrooms to round it out and eliminate the need for a vegetable side dish. I also added to soft veggies (the mushrooms, squash, and bell pepper) very close to the end instead of at the beginning of the simmer. If you're the type who doesn't like super-soft and soggy vegetables, you should do this. It'll keep them a bit crunchy.
My husband and father-in-law (chile-heads) both loved this! It was a little hot for me, so the next I make it I'll take some of the coconut milk and pour it in a small saucepan and add half the hot ingredients to that pot so they can add the "hot sauce" to their taste and the main pot isn't too hot for me. And it reheats fabulously!
This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite dishes. The spice can be customized to your liking. This dish has a distinct Asian flavor, but is heartier than many other meatless dishes.
I love you!!! This recipe is great! Finally, a veggie recipe that stands up to my fire-loving taste! I even added more chili powder than was called for, and it was wonderful! Will make again soon!! Thanks!
Restaurant quality and healthy! perfect as is, but also delicious with a can of diced tomatoes mixed in. The amount of spice was perfect for me.
I think there's a difference between "spicy" and over-spiced. I felt that this recipe was over-spiced to the point of it giving that chalky sensation in your mouth. The recipe was definately edible, just not one I'd save to my recipe box!
