I have been making this for about 10 years. I found the recipe in an international cookbook that I bought and decided to make it one night for my family. We all loved it! Over the years I have modified the recipe. I never did use the green peppers, family preference. I now make it with chopped tomatoes, add a little extra curry and an additional bay leaf, and have made with various varieties of beans, including green beans. That was actually very good but turned the rice a greenish color. Anyway, it is a fabulous recipe and very, very good! Enjoy!

Works very well as a vegan meal. Just leave the meat out. You can add extra beans if you like, or veggies. Very good recipe.
