So what if I have no slow cooker, what would you advise, soaking and cooking the beans first as needs be and then combining them later ? The chickpeas and kidney beans would definitely need more time than the urad dal, I think.

Hi Elizabeth, your recipe caught my attention too. I would like to note something, though, if I may. Red kidney beans in particular are known to contain a toxin which, in order to be deactivated, needs to be exposed to a temperature of just above the boiling point for a few minutes. Hence it is recommended that the beans be brought to a boil on a stovetop first and then transfered to the slow cooker because the slow cookers never reach that desired temperature. You can find qiute a bit of information on this online and the FDA has a detailed article as well. Just wanted to let you know in case you hadn't heard of this and happen to serve the dish to little ones as well.

Thanks! It really is amazing, especially since it's so simple to make with just a few ingredients, yet it has such an incredibly rich, complex flavor. You should definitely try it!
