I used a bunch of Indian spices here in combination with dried beans, tomatoes and yogurt... this mixed bean stew is deliciously spicy and creamy!
Pour the dried beans in a large bowl and add 4 cups (960 ml) of water to fully submerge the beans. Let them soak for at least 3 hours.
Pour the vegetable oil in a large and high pan and then add the coriander seeds, cumin seeds and dried chili pepper.
Place the pan over medium heat until the oil is hot. Fry the spices for 5 minutes. Then add the chopped onion and garlic. Also add the garam masala, curry powder, bay leaves and curcuma.
