  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Tips and Variations:

  • For a smoother texture, blend the cooked moth beans with a hand blender or food processor before adding them back to the curry.
  • If you don't have fresh tomatoes, you can use canned tomatoes, crushed or diced.
  • To add a hint of sweetness, stir in a tablespoon of sugar or a dollop of honey towards the end of cooking.
  • For a spicier curry, increase the amount of green chilies or add a pinch of cayenne pepper.
