Vegetarian Butter Bean Curry

This vegetarian butter bean curry is a traditional Indian curry which can be made with either butter beans or red kidney beans. If prepared with fresh beans, then soak the beans overnight. However this recipe works well with canned beans, as the juice makes a nice thick gravy.
