I gave this name to this bean because I cook it, for some reason, only once a year-at Christmas. Although this dish is very tasty, hearty and easy to prepare. There is an opinion that the Christmas table must be present dishes of beans as a symbol of prosperity. Our choice fell on this option.
Beans wash and soak in cold water for 5 hours. Drain the water. Boil until tender in fresh water.
Carrots cut into large bars and fry in a small amount of sunflower oil. for this purpose, it is desirable to take a cauldron with thick walls.
To carrots add beans (without water), finely chopped garlic, 1.5 cups of juice (or tomato paste diluted with water). The remaining juice is left aside to wait in the wings. Salt the beans and add the sugar. Simmer under the lid for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In the remaining juice, dilute 1 tablespoon of flour so that no lumps remain.
Juice with flour pour into beans, mix and leave under the lid for another 5 minutes.
