Spiced Pinto Beans Powder (Chutney Powder)
This is the second recipe I tried with these healthy Pinto Beans. I tried a Dosa with these beans before that tasted super-delicious. This time I wanted to make a spicy powder with these beans as I love powders to eat with rice.
Heat a pan and add coriander seeds and roast until it changes color. Remove and transfer to a plate.
In the same pan add pinto beans and roast until it changes color and transfer to a plate.
When the coriander seeds and pinto beans become cold, add them to the blender along with cumin seeds + asafetida + chili powder + salt and run the blender until they are finely powdered.
Don’t worry if you can’t get a smooth texture. It still tastes super good.
Transfer the powder to an airtight container or bottle and store.
Enjoy this yummy powder with steaming hot rice and ghee.
