Pink Pinto bean, kidney bean and the black gram…
Method; Wash beans and soak it overnight in plain water. Discard the after in the morning and soak it again with the washed black lentil and Bengal gram for an hour.
Peel, dice and prep onion, tomato, ginger and garlic.
Pressure cooker is the easy and quick way to prepare beans. Check here to learn more on how to cook in a pressure cooker. Pour soaked beans and lentils with water in the pressure cooker.
Add diced onion, tomato, ginger and garlic along with cloves and turmeric powder. Pressure cook it for 6-7 whistles or for 20 minutes on slow heat (my mom hates the sounds of whistle and keep her cooker at slow).
Let the cooker cool down before opening it. Add salt in it and mash all the ingredients slightly leaving half of the beans intact.
Dice green chilies finely and mix red chilly powder, coriander powder and garam masala in the tomato paste. Add this. Heat oil in a wok and splutter cumin seeds in it. Add the green chilies and the spice mixed tomato paste in it, cook for 3-4 minutes on low heat.
Pour this tempering over the cooked beans and cook again for a few minutes.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with Indian flat bread , plain rice or with any bread.
