- 1 can (16 oz.) red kidney beans
- 1 medium red onion
- 3-5 tomatoes (or canned tomatoes 1/2 can)
- 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
- 1-2 tbsp. cooking oil
- 3/4 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
- 1 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
- 4-6 stems cilantro, chopped
- Wash and drain canned kidney beans.
- Finely chop onion and tomatoes separately. Make ginger-garlic paste, and set this aside.
- Place a pan on medium heat and add oil. Add cumin seeds and turmeric powder to the hot oil, allow the cumin seeds to sputter.
- Add ginger-garlic paste and onions and fry for 2 – 3 minutes (until the aroma emits). Add tomatoes, garam masala, cumin and coriander powders and sauté until the onion-tomato mixture begins to leave the sides of the pan.
- Now add drained kidney beans to the above mixture, salt, ½ to 1 cup water (add water depending upon the consistency desired) and allow the mixture to boil for 4 – 5 minutes.
- Turn off the heat, transfer into a serving bowl, and garnish with chopped cilantro.
Serve with warm rice or any Indian bread (eg: chapathi or naan).
- The same recipe can be followed for black-eyed beans, garbanzos, or other beans.
- Unsweetened yellow or white onion can substitute for red onion.
- Chopped green (1/2 pepper) and red bell peppers (1/2 pepper) could be added after step 4, allowed to become tender before adding kidney beans.

When it comes to preparing food, college dorm living can seem two steps away from camping. It only worsens when daytime dining hall options are limited to a scarcely stocked canteen or a busy schedule that requires a dorm room to be stocked with actual food. My colleagues have shared dorm room hacks and tips for turning your dorm room into a kitchen. As college students make the move to dorm rooms for another year it’s a good time to revisit these ideas and more.
