Re: beans and rice and chapaati?
I don't think there was coconut milk, but really-add coconut milk to anything and it's just better! I'm also not sure of the beans. I know they were able to use lots of fresh beans, you could also get dried, but where I lived we got fresh veg pretty much year round. I think any bean could work, just might not taste exactly the same. something meaty though like pinto, pigeon peas sound good.
