This was delicious! I did make a few minor changes -- I cooked my beans from dry, and used the leftover bean cooking liquid in place of the water. For the chili powder I used pure cayenne and increased it to 1 teaspoon. I was afraid that the large amount of hing/asafetida would be overpowering, but after it had simmered for awhile it turned out just perfect. Thanks for a great recipe, I will be making this one again for sure!
This is a tasty dish! I wanted to eat within 30 minutes so made a few cuts to the cooking method. I used only 1 Tbsp of oil and quickly fried the spices, added the tomatoes with about a 1/4 cup of water, and hard boiled for a minute or two, then added the other spices (I used whole coriander seed as I didn't feel like grinding it), drained canned kidney beans, then boiled for a few minutes until it thickened. I added the cilantro and cooked it only another couple minutes. It was very flavorful and delicious, and quick! I already had some rice made so dinner came together in about 20-25 minutes. Thanks so much for posting. I will make this one again.
