Ingredients (for 4-6 persons)
White beans - 500 gms(soaked in water overnight) or canned ones
Beef or Meat - 500 gms (bite size)
Onions - 3 (medium size and chopped)
Green Paprika - 3 (seeds removed and cut in small pieces)
Tomatoes - 3 (pulp and seeds removed and then chopped)
Butter - 3 tbsp
Tomato paste - 1 tbsp
Water or Meat stock - 5 cups
Salt - added to desired taste
Pepper - added to desired taste
1. Drain the soaked white beans and cook them separately. Set aside.
2. Heat the butter in a pan. Saute the onions and then add Paprika, Tomatoes, Tomato paste, salt, pepper and mix well. Cook for 3-5 minutes.
3. Add the meat and water/stock and cook until the meat gets tender. You could pressure cook everything together.
4. Once the meat is done, you could finally add the cooked beans and cook for another 5-10 minutes in a slow flame. If you are using canned beans, wash them well and directly add them in this step. This would save a lot of time!
If you want more watery consistency, add more water/stock or cook on a slow flame for 10 minutes to thicken the gravy.
If you want to make it completely vegetarian, just omit the meat and prepare using vegetable stock for extra richness !
