Fusion Food at its Best

The best of both worlds: Indian curried kidney beans, inside Italian tortellini, all made with love:))
Last week, in a bit of a conundrum- not being able to decide what to eat for breakfast, I combined Nicky's (my sister) tortellini with mums exquisite rajma (curried kidney beans). I was eating them separately, but then dipped the tortellini into the curry and without a seconds thought, the idea was born.
I put aside some rajma, into the freezer until the day I would need it. That day came, and for the first time, I made my own pasta, which ended up as these cute as heck tortellini.
Indeed, I blitzed the rajma, (to which i added nutritional yeast and more coriander), then gingerly placed a small amount into rounds of pasta before shaping. Serious serious fun. 😊
I wasn't sure how they'd turn out as a first timer, so boiled a few whilst frying a few flat tortellini- both were absolutely gorgeous. __ Still playing....🙃
