Another healthy Satvic meal! Initially I wasn't convinced to make it without onion and garlic. But, to my surprise it turned out very tasty and more than I expected.

Red Kidney Beans - 1cup (Soaked in water overnight)
Garbanzo Beans - 1/2 cup((Soaked in water overnight)
Tomato's - 3
Mint Leaves - 10
Dried basil leaves - 1 tsp
Cinnamon- 1/2 stick
Cardamom - 1
Cloves - 2
Ginger - 1tbsp
Bay Leaf - 1
Cumin - 1tsp
Garam masala - 2 tbsp
Chilly powder - 1tbsp

Cook the beans in a open pot with enough water.

Grind Tomatoes, Ginger,Fennel seeds,Cloves, Cinnamon and Mint to fine paste. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard,cardamom,bay leaf. Mix the fine paste and fry till the raw smell subsides.
Add the cooked beans in to this boiling gravy and add water it its too thick. Let it cook in slow heat for 10 mins. Add salt.
Garnish with basil and cilantro.
