In Japan edamame (枝豆) refers mainly to the boiled and salted pods
I adjusted the 'curry fried edamame with tomatoes' recipe after a Japanese recipe (which I can't find anymore, it was probably taken from the cookpad site).
Curry Fried Edamame with Tomatoes
a piece of ginger (ca. 2-3 cm)
1 bunch of green onions, sliced
4 tomatoes, quartered (if large cut into 6 or even 8 pieces)
1 packet edamame beans
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon garam masala (next time I will use sweet curry)
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil for frying
What to do
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add cumin seeds and ginger until fragrant. Add the green onions
and fry until they become slightly tender.
Add the tomato pieces and sauté until they start to soften.
Add the strained edamame beans and heat through. Add the spices and season to taste.
Serve on toasted bread.
We had it for a yummy and quick brunch. And because it was really done so fast and yet very tasty I am sending this recipe to Vardhini's 'Dish it Out' - event.
The ingredients for November are soy and tomatoes. There are lots of delicious recipes posted for this event, so please check it out.
I am also sending it to Smita's The Healthy Cooking Challenge which this month is hosted by Kavi with the theme: Healthy Lunch.
