    breezermom's Note:

    Red kidney beans are very nutritious. They are, however, harder to digest than other beans, which is why they're traditionally cooked with seasonings that help break them down, such as ginger. Use spices that are as fresh as possible--their health benefits, let alone their flavors, will be more potent that way. Garam masala is a mixture of warming spices; find it at Indian grocery stores or gourmet groceries. From Sunset. Cooking time does not include the time needed to cook your rice or cook dried beans, if using.

      This made for a great dinner last night for DH, myself and my friend. We all really enjoyed it. I loved the combination of spices, giving it a really nice flavor and the perfect amount of heat from the serrano. I made in my Dutch oven and did need to let the sauce simmer a lot longer than 20 minutes in order to get it to reduce to the right consistency (however, we were all hanging out and didn't mind waiting). We served over basmati rice. Thanks for an enjoyable meal! Made for Spring 2013 Photo Tag.
