How to make Rajma Masala - Restaurant style

  1. Wash and soak the rajma in 2 cups of hot water. After 8 hours discard the water completely and rinse it in cold water.
  2. In a pressure cooker add 2 to 2.5 cups of water and pressure cook for 10 to 15 whistles. (If the beans are not cooked well, once again pressure cook for 10 to 15 minutes.)
  3. Melt 2 tbsp of unsalted butter in a pan or kadai and add in the bay leaf and cumin. Then add the ( paste 1) onion, garlic, ginger paste. Stir and saute it till the paste turns golden brown.
  4. Add the ( paste 2) tomato puree and saute it till the water evaporates or the butter starts to leave on the sides of the kadai.
  5. Then add in the turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and salt. Stir it for a few seconds and add in the cooked and drained rajmas with 1 cup of water.
  6. Allow it to boil well for 7-10 minutes without the lid. Now you can see the gravy will thicken. At this stage add in the garam masala powder, crushed kasuri methi leaves, cashew paste, sugar and the cold milk along with the milk skin.
  7. Mix the gravy well and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes or till you get the consistency you like.
  8. Serve the rajma masala with roti, poori and parathas along with a tbsp of butter on the top of the gravy.

My Tip:

I prefer the gravies to be not too thick or too runny, so I have added cold milk for medium consistency. If you like to prepare a thick gravy then you can add store bought fresh cream in the final stage. If you want it more spicy, you can increase the quantity of red chilli powder and garam masala powder.
