I was in a rush from work long after sunset today and stopped by my local Spar to grab some foodstuff. One of the items was a can of Borlotti beans. It was the first time I tried this bean and boy did it turn out to be a good choice.

After preparing in with some braised lamb, I recognised its distinct delicious,  velvety taste.  It was what people of Indian descent know as gadra beans.


The fact that it was canned actually enhanced the creamy, nutty flavour.This is definitely going to be a regular item in our pantry from now on.

I would love to hear your thoughts  if you have tried this before.
