      Wow - this was simple and delicious! I used 2 cups of pre-soaked kidney beans which is about the equivalent of a 1 ounce can (just a little more). I cut all of the ingredients in half except for the spices. I didn't have gingerroot so I substitued 1 tsp ginger and used tandoori masala instead of rajma masala because it was all I had on hand. It was still a delicious dish and I will use again - thank you :)

      This was outstanding! It was almost like a chili, which I normally don't like, but the flavors were so good together. It was also incredibly quick and easy and very filling. I'll definitely keep this one on rotation.
