Yemeni white kidney bean recipe/cookbook

I went with a friend to a Yemeni restaurant for lunch. I had 2 white kidney bean dishes that were amazing. On the menu, the dishes were referred to as: soft white kidney beans topped with tomato, and crusty white kidney beans. I would love to make these at home. Anyone know a recipe or a good cookbook? When I asked the server at the restaurant he just looked at me blankly.

Perhaps it would be worth trying to contact the restaurant in hopes of getting someone more willing to share recipes or point you in a helpful direction?

Thanks. I have plans to go back there next week. I am hoping to get the names of the dishes so I can at least search for a recipe on the Internet.

Good luck, and please report back, both dishes sound great.

This doesn't have any crusty white beans on top, but does it sound similar? http://yemeniyah.com/2010/07/25/white-navy-beans-adeni-style/

It seems a little blander than what I ate, but maybe I'll try the recipe this weekend. Thanks for pointing out the website!
