As if a “Kikomando”

Ok I’ve been honest in the title. It is not really a kikomando but it is chapati and beans basically but you can call it a curry when they ask you what you cooked.


  • Flour 500g
  • Water 250g
  • Salt 1tsp
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Oil
  • Baking powder
  • Fresh beans
  • Tomatoes/paste
  • Curry
  • Egg plants
  • Chili


The chapati:

  • Sieve flour& baking powder into a bowl, add salt, onions, carrots, water and 2 tbsp of oil
  • Mix into a dough and knead lightly into a soft and non-sticky dough
  • Roll the dough into palm sized balls then this out the balls with a rolling pin
  • Heat the frying pan and add 1tb of oil
  • Place chapatti and cook till each side is brown, you can add a little oil if the pan gets dry while still coking the chapatti

The Bean curry:

  • Boil the beans till ready depending on the type of beans you’re dealing with, this can take from 1 hour to 3 hours.
  • Heat oil and sauté the onions, add tomatoes, spices, vegetables and water Boil for 2 minutes and add beans
  • Boil for about 10-20 minutes stirring occasionally, reduce the heat and let the sauce simmer for about 10 more minutes
  • Plate the chapati and serve your curry once ready.
