Kidney Bean Stew With Sweet Potatoes and Oranges

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sharon123

All the spices make this a special dish with delicious flavors! From Bal Arneson - The Spice Goddess on the cooking channel. The stew can be eaten alone or with rice and it tastes perfectly spiced both ways. The fresh roasted coriander and the addition of oranges makes this a surprisingly light stew compared to the heavier texture and feel of traditional Indian Rajma/Chhole dishes.

I really liked this simple to make stew even though I had to skip some of the ingredients that I do not have access to. So good and so easy and a great pantry dish! Thanks for sharing!
