Kidney Bean Mushroom Curry

I was in the mood for my top comfort food: curry. I adapted this from a mushroom masala curry recipe that I got from a blog which no longer exists, otherwise I'd point you to the recipe. I will post it here so you can try it if you like.

Kidney Bean and Mushroom Curry

1 TB canola oil
1 large onion, chopped
1" piece ginger, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 TB Earth Balance margarine
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 large tomato, chopped
2 TB tomato paste
1 TB chopped jalapeno or 1/8 tsp cayenne
2 tsp. garam masala
1 cup plain soymilk
1 container fresh mushrooms sliced
1 14oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup water
fresh cilantro, chopped

Heat oil in a pot and saute onion, ginger and garlic until they soften. Add margarine and let it melt, then add cumin seeds and fry until everything browns. Add tomato paste, chopped tomato, jalapeno and garam masala and cook for a few minutes. Add mushrooms and stir around some more before adding soymilk and water. Let come to a boil. Add beans and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add cilantro at the end. Serve hot with rice.

Hell yeah! That looks so rich and delicious.
You're far more organised than me when it comes to recipes. I often see things I like and then just book mark the page only to find out it's no longer available or something. I must practice the art of copying and pasting into notepad.
