This is a delicious, simple recipe based on mung beans and coconut milk. A true explosion of flavors from India with a wide variety of fragrant spices.
The mung bean is an important legume that has been used for cooking in human civilization for several thousand years. Rich in fiber, complex carbohydrates and antioxidants, mung bean reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases and helps regulate body weight. It also contains important minerals such as iron, zinc, copper and potassium.
In addition to microalgae such as Golden Chlorella, it is one of the hopeful sources for a healthier human diet in the future. We offer mung bean protein in powder form, Golden Bean, which is also contained in our pasta.
Here the list of all you need to recreate this fantastic, nourishing mung bean curry dish:
- 4 tablespoons of rapeseed oil or other vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
- 9 garlic cloves
- 1 ¾ cup crushed tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons grated ginger
- 2 tablespoons ground coriander
- 1 tablespoon turmeric
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 4 cups of water
- 1 cup Mung Beans
- 1 ¾ cup coconut milk
- 1-2 limes
- ½ cup cilantro
- 1 teaspoon Golden Bean
In a casserole, heat the oil to medium-high temperature. Add the cumin seeds, roast for about 1 minute until brown. Add the cloves of garlic; let them roast for 3-4 minutes until they turn brown. Add the crushed tomatoes and stir. While stirring, add the ginger, coriander, turmeric, cayenne pepper and salt. Stir-fry for 5 minutes.
Add the water and the Mung beans. Increase the heat to a boil, then reduce, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir from time to time.
Taste the Mung beans, as soon as they are cooked; pour the coconut milk and increase the heat until boiling then turn off the heat.
Stir in cilantro and limejuice.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of Golden Bean to your dish to supercharge it with vegan protein, vitamins and minerals. This subtlety will not change the taste or the color of your curry dish. Serve hot.
A true delight. Enjoy your meal!
