Rajma Curry Recipe

Rajma is also known as Red Beans or kidney beans. Though Rajma curry or Rajma Masala is a popular punjabi dish it is on the favorite list of most of the people in the northern part of India as Rajma - Chawal combo. Yes it goes very well with rice, but it can be served with roti,chapati, nan or any other bread too.

Here is a very simple and easy recipe to make this rajma curry.
Rajma (Kidney Beans) - 1 cup
Onion - 2 (chop finely or blend)
Tomato - 2
Ginger-garlic paste - 1sp
Green Chillies - 3,4
Garam masala powder - 1tbsp (take whole masala and grind them-cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper)
Coriander Powder - 1tbsp
Red chilli powder(optional) - 1/2 tbsp
Kasuri Methi
Chopped coriander
Oil - 1 sp
Butter - 1sp

1. Soak Rajma overnight and cook in pressure cooker (I usually give 8-10 whistels) till done, they shouldn't be too mashed up.
2. Take oil in a pan, add one by one-cumin seeds, onion,  green chillies, ginger garlic paste and saute them. 
3. Add chopped tomatoes. Masala powder, coriander powder and mix well. 
4. Add the water drained from boiling rajma to this mixture and let it cook nicely for 10-12 min or till the whole mixture has mashed properly. Add more water if required.
5. Now its the time to add rajma, mix well, add kasuri methi, salt and butter. Let it cook for another 10 min or so till the masala is absorbed into the rajma nicely and the whole mixture is blended and a nice gravy is formed. 
6. Garnish with coriander (I forgot to add here before clicking!) and serve hot
