This is a spicey recipe.

1. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Put the next 5 ingredients in the pan, onion through black pepper and sauté for about 5 minutes until the onions turn golden brown.

2. Next add the ground mustard, red pepper, turmeric and chopped eggplant. Reduce the heat to medium and sauté for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Once the eggplant has softened, pour the can of diced tomatoes in the pan. Keep heat on medium and simmer for 10 minutes while stirring frequently.

4. Finally add the kidney beans, mix everything together, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 more minutes until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and serve. If you like cilantro you can sprinkle a little over the top of each serving.
