Wash and soak pinto beans overnight. Drain the water and pressure cook with a little salt and 1 1/2 cups of water until the beans are soft and slightly overcooked.
Ladle half of the beans and grind it coarsely. Mash the rest of the beans slightly with a potato smasher.
Add garlic paste and saute for a few more seconds. Add tomato puree, chilli powder, cumin powder, tomato ketchup and salt needed.
Cook for a few minutes, then add the cooked beans along with the water and cook on high flame.
When it starts boiling, simmer and cook until the sauce thickens. Homemade delicious and healthy refried beans is ready to be served.
If you cannot get pinto beans, use kidney beans or rajma.
It can be refrigerated for a week and used when needed.
