  • 1 cup pink beans , cooked until tender with about 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 medium red onion , sliced very thinly
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic , thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red habanero pepper , chopped finely (wash hands thoroughly after handling!)
  • 1 medium tomato , chopped
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric (optional)
  • 1/2 cup dill , finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sugar and stir for a minute. Turn the heat to medium-low and let the onions caramelize, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the chopped habanero pepper and garlic. Cook for about five minutes. By now the onions should be fairly brown and the garlic would have taken a golden hue.
  • Add the tomato, turmeric if using, and cumin and coriander powders. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the oil begins to separate.
  • Add the beans and stir to mix. Add salt to taste.
  • Allow the beans to simmer for about 10 minutes until the flavors have merged.
  • Add the chopped dill and turn off the heat.
  • Serve hot!
