Beans are having a real moment right now, so I’ve been using beans in some of my favorite sauces. Today we add them to this flavorful Indian sauce.

All the amazing complex flavor is always in the spiced Indian sauces! The proteins( meats, tofu, beans) taste so good because of the well spiced and simmered sauce! This sauce today is vibrant, deep and delicious! Do pyaza translates to double onions. In this fragrant toasted cumin and onion sauce, you add onions at two different points. You’ve got seared onions in the topping and caramelized in the base sauce. Caramelized onion with well toasted cumin and other spices makes for a deeply rich and flavored sauce.

This one is an amazing curry to use with any protein that you like, like baked tofu, chickpeas, beans, soy curls, seitan, vegan chicken substitutes, or whatever you like. I’m using great northern beans, but you can also use other white beans, like cannellini beans, butter beans, or you can even use chickpeas in the same sauce. 

It’s a fabulous, flavorful sauce!

This is also a freezer-friendly recipe. You can freeze just the sauce or the sauce and beans together and heat it up and serve whenever you’re ready.

Beans do pyaza is also a great way to serve beans on toast! if you want the beans and toast to be extra flavorful and spiced 🙂 As with spiced Indian curries and sauces, the flavor gets stronger as the sauce sits. The flavor also depends on the age of your spices. If you find yourself tripling the amount of spices listed in my recipes, the spices are probably quite old.
This sauce pairs well with any kind of protein like baked tofu, vegan chicken subs, roasted cauliflower or veggies and what not! With the beans It makes a simple, cozy, satisfying one-pot meal.
