How to Make Black Bean Soup with Indian Spices


  • 1Drain the beans. Combine the beans, 8 cups fresh water, onions, garlic, and ginger in a soup pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Skim off any foam that rises to the top. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer until the beans are very tender, about 2 hours.
  • 2Let the beans cool slightly, then puree in a blender or food processor or strain through a food mill. Return to the pot and add the cumin, salt, cardamom and coriander. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  • 3Just before serving, stir in the coconut milk and cilantro. Serve hot. Do not allow the soup to boil once the coconut milk has been added.
