Mexican beans and fruit !!

I was supposed to post this recipe more than one month ago, but one reason and another it was just sitting there in my folder..today I made it again and my daughter asked me if have posted it or not? (this one is her fav).  and I promised her that today I'll definitley post it..So here I am with this recipe. Earthy rustic beans, are good paired with fruit, as in this classic from the Mexican Kitchen, where it is called frijoles con frutas.  If fruit with beans sounds alarming just remember that the tomato-an essential ingredient of our familiar baked beans-is also a fruit.  This is a high - fibre dish, rich with vitamins...


You will need:-
  • 1/2 tin pineapple cubes
  • 1 green skind apple(used granny Smith)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 small onion finly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1 ripe tomato chopped
  • 1/4 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1 tin borlotti beans drained
  • Salt to taste
  • fresh coriander
Method:-

Heat the oil in a pan and cook onions with garlic until they are lightly browned and softened.  Meanwhile dice the apple and sprinkle with lemon juice.  Now add diced apple and continue to cook, stirring frequently, untill dice are slightly brown, add pineapple and cook for few minutes.  Now add tomatoes and chilli powder and Tabasco sauce and continue to cook for more 3-4 minutes.  Add the beans to the fruit mixture and stir well and cook urther 5 minutes over a low heat to mix and mingle the flavours.  Season to taste with salt.  Garnish with the fresh coriander.  For a mexican style presentation, accompanany with flour tortillas...Enjoy as much as my daughter did.....

  40. Hi Jagruti,
    Dish looks yummy! Daughters are sooo sweeeet.
    This is my first time here. Thanks for visiting my blog and also for your encouraging comments.

    Loved the 'Kem Cho' series. I love gujarati food...my neighbours in India were Gujaratis, so I grew up eating many authentic gujarati dishes. I make Guju food quite often at home. I was a little dissappointed to not find the adadiya recipe in this series. Mane bahu bhave :-).
