Indian Spiced Kidney Bean Stew

This is our version of the aromatic kidney bean curry called rajma. We season the dish with two spice blends—garam masala and curry powder—along with a good dose of cumin to add earthy notes, so its flavor is complex and robust. Blooming the spices in the oil brings depth and fullness to the dish. You can offer the stew as a part of an Indian meal, but they’re hearty enough to be a vegetarian main. If you like, garnish with plain yogurt and serve basmati rice or warmed naan alongside.

Tip

Don't adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper until after the bean mixture has simmered for 5 to 8 minutes to reduce and thicken. If seasoned before simmering, the beans may wind up too salty, as the seasonings become more concentrated with reduction.
