Ingredients to make Rajma Masala

  • rajma/Kidney beans - 1/2cup
  • tomatoes blended to a puree - 3
  • Big onion –1 sliced lengthwise
  • ginger garlic paste - 1 and 1/2 teaspoon
  • chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Curry powder - 2 teaspoon
  • Dry Kasuri methi- a generous pinch

How to make Rajma Masala

  1. Soak rajma beans overnight. Once done cook the beans in pressure cooker with some water for 5 to 6 whistles or till cooked.
  2. Melt butter in kadai, add in the bay leaf, clove and cinnamon. Add in the onions and saute till transparent.
  3. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute till raw smell leaves. Now add the cooked rajma and saute for a while.
  4. Add the tomato puree and let it boil till the raw smell is gone. (maybe 2 to 3 minutes).
  5. Add the curry powder,chilli powder and salt and mix well.. Mash some of the rajma to get a creamy and thick texture for the gravy.
  6. Add in the crushed dry kasuri methi and stir. Add cream if needed let it boil for a minute and switch off. Garnish with fresh cream and serve hot with roti/naan.

My Tip:

1. Proper soaking and cooking of rajma is very important as it kills some particular toxin 2. Ginger and garlic helps neutralizing gassy effect.
