  • Heat the oil in a wide, heavy saucepan over a medium flame.
  • When hot, put in the cumin seeds.
  • Five seconds later, put in the crushed chili.

  • Stir and cook for about a minute.
  • Put in the coriander.
  • Stir a few times.
  • Now put in the chopped tomatoes.
  • Stir and cook for about 2 minutes, mashing up the tomato pieces with the back of a slotted spoon as you do so.
  • Put in the beans, salt and the remaining water.
  • Bring to simmer.
  • Cover, turn heat to low and cook for about 8-10 minutes or until the beans are tender.
