My Passion for Beans

My Passion for Beans. The first time I ever had a combination of beans and grain was in my 20's when I was staying with a friend in London. Her boyfriend was Indian and he cooked us a meal one evening. I wasn't keen on the look of the dish and reluctantly tried it, only to be surprised by its wonderful melding of tastes, a combination of nutty, earthy flavours and exotic spices that I had never experienced before, I loved it and will never forget it 40 yrs later.
