Delicious and dead easy to make. I gave samples to three people at work and they each wanted the recipe, which is always a good sign. I made the recipe exactly as written (with all optional spices), and it's hot, but not annoyingly so to my palate. I think the heat is properly used to provide structure and depth of flavor to the dish, though more heat-sensitive palates may wish to moderate the cayenne and the heat of the tomatoes/chilies. Very highly recommended.
This was good but needs some work. I couldn't tell if the beans were supposed to be drained or not so I drained them; the resulting curry was very dry. I used Madras curry powder and no cayenne but added some minced garlic. I then used the immersion blender to make the curry saucier after it cooked. It needs something to really round off the flavor; maybe some tomato paste or chili powder (maybe just extra cumin). Overall, tho, a good and fast curry.

Wow! Was this every good. Hearty, easy and a wonderful flavour! I used two 14 ounce cans of diced tomatoes and 1 small can of diced green chillies (couldn't find Rotel brand) and one can each of chickpeas, and substituted navy beans for kidney beans. I did reduced the amount of cayenne, but added the cardamom and ginger. I will be making this again! Yum!!!!
