If you feel like having a quick snack or entertaining guests, this is the recipe for you. Proceed with caution as you're going to get addicted to making this all the time!

The absolute pro to this recipe is that it's inexpensive because you just use ingredients that you have in the pantry.

Puri and Patha pair well together, but you can eat them with whatever curry you like too. Enjoy :)

Nothing brings people together like good food, especially a comforting meal of Spicy Trotters and Beans Curry.

You'll whip this up in no time. Remember to garnish with dhania, serve with roti or rice and more importantly, enjoy!

My son’s favourite dish is Kebab Chutney with roti. He’s since decided to become a vegetarian which inspired me to make this dish using the same ingredients with green bananas instead of meat.


I was asked by my daughter-in-law if I could make Chilli Con Carne and I said yes, it is actually beans and mince with various vegetables. I decided to make it using the vegetables that I had, so please try it and add veggies of your choice. 😊
