From: "Zoe Sodja" <> Wash, scrub, and prick potatoes. Bake until done, 1 to 1-1/2 hrs in regular or 10-15 min. in microwave.
Heat a couple Tbs. of the water in a saucepan, add the onions, and cook gently for 5 min., stirring frequently. Add the garlic, turmeric, cumin seeds, and curry paste, and cook gently for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, chickpeas, kidney beans, lemon juice, tomato paste, rest of water, and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, cover, cook gently for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Spoon bean mixture over baked potatoes and garnish with mint sprigs and a dollop of fatfree yogurt if desired.
