I love curries with chapatis so much! Anyone from you guys can share a home recipe, I have my curry cookbook but unfortunately I cant cook here because some of the spices aren't availble here in the philippines or should i say I have to find it end to end of this country. A simple yet tastes good curry recipe would be really ^_^ be fantastic! Or else are there any indian recipes you know as well that's easy to cook ^_^ Im kinda craving for these foods, its been a while I havent had these foods. The last time was on the plane back to the philippines..

We have chapathis with baked beans (started when I grew up outside India). Is a can of baked beans available in the Phillipines? All you have to do is heat 2 tbsp of oil...and do a tadka with mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves....then saute some sliced onions till translucent....add baked beans with a little water and salt to taste...heat for a while and it's ready to eat. It hardly takes 15 minutes to cook (including slicing onions!)

Tadka - heat a little oil...add mustard seeds, broken red chillies and curry leaves. This is the south indian style of tadka. North indians might add jeera (cumin seeds), saute some onions and tomatoes....as tadka. But since baked beans in the can comes with tomato paste...it isn't necessary to add tomato.

In some dishes, the tadka is added at the end. We do the tadka in a small kadai (something like a wok) and then pour it over the dish. Let me know how it turns out....and if you like it.
