What they’re saying about Vegan Richa’s Indian
Kitchen Richa Hingle’s first cookbook is nothing short
of phenomenal. The software developer-turned-
blogger sensation brings Indian cooking to the

modern kitchen by simplifying traditional recipes,
demystifying spices and pantry staples, and creating
healthy versions of classic dishes. Whether you have a
love affair with Indian food or are new to the flavors
of one of the world’s great cuisines, you will be

dazzled by Richa’s recipes and accessible style. Her
Mango Curry Tofu, Street Style Tempeh Wraps, and
Sweet and Sour Pumpkin have all become instant hits
in my home—and I can’t wait to keep cooking from
one of the best cookbooks on Indian food (vegan or
not) I’ve ever seen. —Colleen Holland, co-founder of

Creamy Black Gram and Kidney Bean Curry
Dal Makhani

Prep: 15 minutes (+4 hour soak) | Active: 20 minutes | Inactive: 45
minutes | Serves 4


Dal Makhani is a creamy, rich, and comforting dal. It is one of the more popular dals, along with
Dal Tadka. The prep and cook time for this dal is a bit longer than for others. It is usually made from
scratch with dried black gram and dried kidney beans which are soaked overnight, then pressure
cooked, and then simmered for an hour or longer. Because of the time involved, this hearty dal is
usually made for special occasions. Serve with roti or naan flatbread, or rice pilaf or other cooked
grains such as quinoa or millet. The recipe is written for black gram (whole urad) which will give it
an authentic flavor. If these are unavailable, you may use green mung beans or brown lentils, but use
less water.

1 cup dried whole black gram (whole urad), washed, soaked 4 hour or overnight, drained 3 to 4
cups water (use 3 cups for brown lentils)

1 cup cooked kidney beans

1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons safflower or other neutral oil

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

2 to 3 green chiles, finely chopped (remove seeds to reduce heat) 1 (1-inch) knob of ginger, finely
chopped 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 medium onion, chopped (1 cup)
1/8 teaspoon asafetida (omit to make gluten-free) 2 medium tomatoes, chopped (1 1/2 cups) 1/2
teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon Garam Masala (here) 1 tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves, or 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek
seeds 1/4 cup cashew milk or 1/3 cup almond milk 1 tablespoon vegan butter, for garnish 1/4 cup
chopped cilantro, for garnish 1. Lentils: Combine the lentils in a saucepan with 3 cups of water.
Cover and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes. If the water threatens to boil over, open the
