SPICY & CREAMY RED BEANS CURRY

Happy MASHUJAA DAY KENYA! (HEROES DAY) Today is a Holiday to celebrate our heroes that fought for our self rule and independence. I know, beans is not exactly a celebratory dish, or is it? But this bean curry is what you just need to eat with some yummy chapati! We surprised dad for his birthday too. His birthday in on 23rd that is this coming Wednesday but since we were all available we thought why not have his birthday today. These beans were accompanied by some Chapati, cabbage stir fry, Beef Stew, and plain Rice. Like I said, these were no ordinary beans., no sir! You can add spice for some heat but still delicious just as they are.
