Introduction

Indian Kidney Beans Indian Kidney Beans
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 cups red kidney beans
    1 cup raw onions, chopped
    1 can crushed tomatoes
    1 tbsp salt
    1 tbsp pepper, red or cayenne
    2 cups water
    1 tbsp canola oil

Directions

Saute onions in oil until golden brown.
Add crushed tomatoes, cook for a few minutes.
Add kidney beans, water, salt, and pepper. Heat through. Serve alone or with basmati rice.

TIPS:
-Use canned kidney beans to make this quickly, be sure to rinse the beans before adding them.
-You can add as much or as little water to the pot depending on what consistency you like.
-You can also add garlic and or ginger to change up the flavors.
-If you REALLY want to change the flavor, buy MDH channa masala (in my opinion the best channa masala brand) or chat masala and add around 1/4 teaspoon to the dish.

    This was so easy to make, and delicious! However, the sodium content is off the map. Perhaps 1 tbsp of salt was a mistake? I used cumin, and just a dash of salt, and it was fine. I also used a fresh tomato in the food processor (lower sodium than canned), and rinsed beans as suggested. Thanks! - 4/10/07

    This was easy to adapt to the crockpot as well I also opted for no salt and to sprinkle a smidge on afterwards. - 3/27/09
