Recipe Quick Cook - Tanzanian Makande Sweetcorn & Kidney Bean Stew

This is one I can do myself long as I can stand at the hob long enough to put a pan on, open the tins and stick the ingredients in the pan and set the egg timer.  For people who can stand for long enough to saute the onions, excellent, but it's just as tasty without doing that!  It's probably possible to do in a microwave also, but you'll have to work out timings for yourself for that.

According to the Recipe Book this is from - The African & Middle Eastern Cookbook (Josephine Bacon and Jenni Fleetwood) which is where I got the picture (the wonders of scanners!) this is a recipe from the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania.  Though I know Kenyans have something similar...

What is it?  A stew made from onions, sweetcorn, kidney beans, coconut cream and vegetable stock.  It's like a soup with bits in.
