Step-step making Vegetarian chili with pickled red onions

  1. If youre using dried beans, soak them in plenty of water overnight. The next day drain them, place in a pan with fresh water, bring to the boil and simmer for about 1 hour, until tender. Drain and put to one side.

  2. To make the pickled onions, which are a lovely addition to the chili, juice the lime into a bowl. It will be much easier to juice it if you microwave it, whole, for 20 seconds on full power.

  3. Heat a large skillet, add the mustard seeds and let them start to crackle, then add the oil. Fry the onion for a few minutes until softened, then add the garlic and chopped chilies, stir in the chili powder or paste (a little at first) and the dried herbs.

  4. Throw in the beans and tomatoes, season with at least 1 tsp of salt, add the ketchup and simmer for 20 minutes until the tomatoes break down and theres hardly any liquid at the bottom. You can cover it with lid for some of the time but take care not to catch it.

  5. Check for seasoning, add more salt or chili powder if needed and serve with the pickled onions, garnishes of your choice and some plain rice if you fancy.
