Chilli Indian Style


Everyone in my home loves Chilli so much, I decide to create and Indian version of my own, just for fun. This is my version of Chilli! It will feed at least 4 people. Enjoy!

  • 2 cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed under running water
  • 3 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 medium-sized onions chopped fine
  • 2 tsps garlic paste
  • 2 tsps ginger paste
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped into 1" cubes
  • 2 fresh green chillies chopped fine
  • 2 tsps coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
