|Sabut Urad (Black Gram) and Kidney Beans to make Sabut Kaali Dal aur Rajmah.|
Yet another winner from Anupy Singla's "The Indian Slow Cooker" Book. Can't get better than a rich Indian Chili with Whole Urad and Kidney Beans. Another very simple recipe. You do throw the onions, garlic, and chilies in the Cuisinart this time. Making it even easier. Just pay attention when shopping for "Black Lentils". Urad Whole, Black Gram, and Matpe Beans are some other names for this prolific Indian legume. Don't buy what you think looks like a lentil that we are used to (a flat thin legume) in a black color. You may think it doesn't make a difference, but this Black Gram bean has an amazing, creamy flavor and does not have the same flavor as lentils that I am used to eating. Especially important to pick the correct beans if you want an authentic Indian flavor.
|Sabut Urad, Black Gram, Matpe Beans. These are all names for the Black Lentils used in Indian Cooking.|
|Kidney Beans (Rajmah)|
|This even removes the manual chopping.|
|Put everything in the cooker. Add Water. Push a button. Think ya can handle it?|
|After Cooking for a few hours.|
|And 8 hours later.....the finished product. The beans are perfect. They keep their form so beautifully in the slow cooker.|
Also LOVING the Miracle Rice Cooker and happy about the stainless steel interior.
