Kenyan Mung Bean Stew Recipes

Ingredients :

1.25 cups mung beans, soaked overnigh

2 tbsp ghee or butter

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 red onion, chopped

2 tbsp tomato puree

1/2 green pepper, seeded and cut into small cubes

1/2 red pepper, seeded and cut into small cubes

1 green chili, seeded and finely chopped

1.25 cups water

Method :

Put the mung beans in a large saucepan, cover with water and boil until the beans are soft and the water has evaporated. Remove from the heat and mash roughly with a fork or potato masher. Heat the ghee or butter in a separate saucepan, add the garlic and onion and fry for 4-5 minutes until golden brown, then add the tomato puree and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time. Stir in the mashed beans, then the green and red peppers and chili. Add the water, stirring well to mix all the ingredients together. Pour back into a clean saucepan and simmer for about 10 minutes, then spoon into a serving dish and serve at once.

Serves 4

The Kenyan name for this simple and tasty stew is Dengu. If you prefer a more traditional, smoother texture, cook the mung beans until very soft, then mash them thoroughly until smooth.
