    I halved the recipe, and used canned beans instead of dried. With mango chutney and all that curry powder, I expected very bold flavor, but I just didn't get it. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about

    I cheated a little...I used a combination of canned great northern and garbanzo beans. But this was great!
