  • Wash the kidney beans well and soak in water overnight.
  • Next morning, steam them until tender; or cook in a large pot of water for about an hour or until tender.

  • Grind 1 onion, ginger, coriander seeds, chili peppers, cumin, turmeric, peppercorns, and cinnamon to a very fine paste.
  • Heat ghee in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chopped onions and saute until golden brown.
  • Add the ground paste and saute, sprinkling water occasionally, until the ghee starts separating from the paste.
