This is my version of a recipe from the Hare Krishna website(www.harekrsna.com). This site is a goldmine for Indian vegetarian recipes. I also love the fact that Hare Krishna cooking doesn't use garlic and onions (which I do love), but substitute Hing or asafoetida powder. It's great when you're too lazy to chop/cry while chopping, and hing has its own healthy properties. I believe it is supposed to be an anti-flatulent for one thing. This dish is sort of like an Indian bean chili (an oxymoron for some). I ate it mixed with some basmati rice I cooked in my rice cooker with a small piece of cinnamon stick and a couple of green cardamom pods. My husband ate it with tortilla chips the next day. Some of the elements of the recipe were vague in the original recipe, so use your judgement! The cooking time is just a guess, and depends on your taste.
