Curried Rice and Beans

We had some heat and eat Indian food last night for dinner.  I love these, (so yummy) but we only had two boxes instead of the usual four. There wasn’t enough in the little boil in a pot packets and so I made this to go on the side.  I just grabbed the rice and a can of beans and just sort of threw it all together and thought it might be ok with some spices.  I’m glad I did, it was delicious, fast and filling.  Later on after dinner, I decided I just had to have this again and wrote down everything I did.  I tried to remember exactly how much of each spice, there were a lot of them. (Often, when I’m cooking on the fly like this, I just keep adding and tasting, adding and tasting, till it’s just right.)  It might need a little more of a spice, I tried to be conservative writing the amount of each.
