Desi Baked Beans #sikandalouscuisine
I don't know how I remembered this delicious ' treat ' we used to get for a snack or at breakfast while growing up many moons ago. It's really nothing - a can of baked beans , jazzed up with desi flavors and served on toast - my mom would serve this as a pass around snack at parties on deadly squares of Deep fried bread .
1 Can Baked Beans.
1 Large Onion Chopped.
3-4 Shallots - They look good !
1 Tablespoon Garlic Chopped.
1 Tej Putta
Chopped Green Chilies.
Dhania Greens - I have lots of sweet basil growing so used that - super balance in flavors.
Freshly Ground Black Pepper To Taste.
Heat oil , add tej putta and black pepper to infuse their flavors in the oil , then add in garlic and onions along with shallots. Cook only till onions begin to sweat , maybe one minute.Now add in green chilies and baked beans , cook covered on low for about 4-5 minutes , taste , adjust ....add in Dhania greens , take off heat.
A delicious childhood memory !
