Directions

Ginger Root, 4 tsp (remove)
Garlic, 4 tsp (remove)
Red Ripe Tomatoes, 2 medium whole (2-3/5" dia) (remove)
Pepper, red or cayenne, 2 tbsp (remove)
Olive Oil, 1 tbsp (remove)
black lentils dried, 1 cup (remove)
kidney beans dried, .33 cup (remove)
Butter, unsalted, 1.5 tbsp (remove)
*Milk, 2%, .75 cup (remove)
2 t garam masala (Madhur uses 1 tbsp cardamom seeds; 2 tsp. cloves, 1 tsp. black pepper, 1 tsp. cumin seeds, 2" cinnamon stick; 1/3 nutmeg; curl of mace. grind to a fine powder, store in a tightly closed jar and use as needed)

Wash the beans and drain. Cover with water and leave to soak overnight. Drain.

In a large pan, combine the beans with 2 1/2 quarts water and bring to boil. Cover, turn the heat low and simmer gently for 3 - 4 hours or until beans are tender (did I hear the words 'crock pot'?).

With a potato masher, beat or mash about half of the beans until they form an exceedingly coarse puree.

Half the beans should remain whole. Add the ginger, garlic, tomatoes, cayenne, salt, butter, milk and garam masala. Cook gently for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

The beans may be served just this way with a final dollop of butter.
