Indian Masala Chili


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan cook beef over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Drain fat; set aside. In the same saucepan cook onion, carrot, jalapeno pepper, garlic, and ginger for 5 to 7 minutes or until soft. Add Indian Masala and paprika; cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in beans, broth, salt, and reserved beef.

  • Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Top each serving with yogurt and cilantro. Garnish with apple slices, if desired.

*Handling Hot Peppers

Because hot chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

5 star delicious---can't wait to make it again! Still recognizable as chili, but different & distinctive. Used 1 largish jalapeno & it wasn't too hot. Not hard to make. I used store bought (Spice Islands) Garam Masala. I had no Garbanzo beans in the house so used Great Northern, and they were terrific! With the simmer time and tasty broth, next time I'm going to try a 2nd can of beans to stretch it for leftovers/lunch tomorrow.
