Rajma masala
The good old Rajma. Red kidney beans cooked in tomatoes and spices. My all time favorite.
    Preparation Method
  1. In a pan heat the oil, add cumin seeds, asafoetida, turmeric powder, chopped tomatoes. saute for 2 min so that tomatoes become soft & oil is separated.
  2. Add red chili powder, coriander powder, pressure cooked rajma & salt to taste. Add little water for gravy.
  3. Add lemon juice & garam masala. Let it cook for 5-10 min stirring occasionally. mesh some rajma to make thick gravy.
  4. Cook it for another 5-10 min & turn off the stove. Don’t forget to stir in between.
  5. Now Rajma Masala is ready!! Garnish with Coriander.
  6. Serve hot with rice, roti, paratha, naan etc…
    Additional Note
  • You can have it with rice... it's tasty & yummy
    You can even add finely chopped peppers all three colours - Red, Green & Yellow

    I like this recipe, but I heat the oil, add the cumin, and wait 1 minute. Then I add the turmeric and asafoetida plus some Serrano peppers, fresh chopped ginger and curry leaf. Then I add a 1/2 tsp of cayenne instead of the chili powder
