Recipe tips
Method
Put the onion in a large non-stick pan, add the oil and a generous pinch of salt, and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes, or until the onion starts to soften.

Add the garlic and ginger paste and stir in well, then stir in the curry powder. Pour in the pineapple, along with all of the juice. Add the kidney beans, then the tomatoes, and stir well. Season generously with black pepper and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the curry from sticking and burning. You may need to add a splash of water to stop it from drying out.

Serve hot, with basmati rice and coriander, if using.
