Spicy Baked Beans

This is an Indian influenced dish which I was inspired by one of Saturday's Kitchen guest chef. Most of the time, I will have my baked beans just as it is or add scrambled eggs, chopped onions to it and have it with bread. This version came out pretty well and it tastes great with chapati. In fact, you can add some potatoes and curry leaves and use it as a thosai filling - just a thought *wink*
