Coconut Beans + Chapatis

This simple and satisfying recipe came to us from one of our daughter's
friends from Kenya.   The chapati recipe is softer than
other homemade chappatis we have made.

Coconut Beans

4 cans black beans, drained
1 can coconut milk
1 chopped onion
1 Tablespoon oil or fat
 Salt to taste

  1. Fry onion in large skillet.
  2. Add drained beans.
  3. Mix in  ¾ can if coconut milk
  4.  Let it simmer until it cooks down, then add the remaining  ¼ can of coconut milk.
  5. Serve warm with chapatis or pita bread.
 2 cups flour
 ¼ teaspoon salt
 ¾ - 1 cup hot water
melted butter
  1. Mix flour, salt, and hot water.  Knead until elastic.
  2. Divide dough into fourths.
  3. Roll each into thin circles and spread thinly with melted butter.
  4. Roll up like a small jelly roll and then roll it into a coil, tucking end into the middle.
  5. Roll flat again.
  6. Lightly oil a hot heavy skillet and fry until golden-brown on both sides.
