Bean Curry in a Thermal Cooker

I love curry!  Anyone who has followed the blog knows I have posted a few times before about curry dishes I have made.  Today I made a vegetarian bean curry on the single burner camp stove and after the contents reached a rolling boil I moved them to the thermal cooker for a few hours.

Vegetarian Bean Curry,


-olive oil, 2 tablespoons
-1 large white onion
-1/2 cup dry lentils
-2 cloves garlic minced
-3 tablespoons of curry powder
-1 teaspoon ground cumin
-1 pinch of cayenne pepper
-1 can crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
-1 can garbanzo beans (15 oz)
-1 can kidney beans (8 oz)
-1/2 cup rasins
-salt and pepper

Cook the onion in the olive oil, add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a rolling boil.  Then place the pot into the thermal cooker and let cook another 2 hours.

Above, the assembled ingredients for the Vegetarian Bean Curry Dish.

Below, sauté the onion first, then add the rest of the ingredients.

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
