Rajma (Red Kidney Bean curry) Recipe

As I grew up a lot changed around me. Life had its own pace and I reached to a point where I get to visit my mother once or twice in a year. One thing that I miss the most is the food prepared in the house by my mom.

Even today, whenever I visit home there are few dishes that my mother would prepare for me as a homecoming celebration. One of those dishes is ‘Rajma Chawal’ or Red Kidney Bean curry with rice. I relish this curry with so much love that for a moment I used to forget everything.

So in this blog post I would love to share the recipe. Get ready, here comes the ingredient needed for  Red Kidney Bean curry:

Ingredients:

  1. Red Kidney Beans 500 grams (I used soft canned Zeta Kidneybönor)
  2. Tomato Puree 250 grams
  3. Oil 4 tablespoons
  4. Onions finely chopped 2 medium
  5. Ginger-garlic paste 2 tablespoons
  6. Coriander powder 2 teaspoons
  7. Cumin powder 1 teaspoon
  8. Red chilli powder 1 teaspoon
  9. Garam masala powder 1 1/2 teaspoons
  10. Fresh coriander leaves chopped 1 tablespoon

Method

Step 1:
Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Add onions and sauté till light brown.

Step 2
Add ginger-garlic paste and sauté for 2 minutes. Add coriander powder, cumin powder and red chilli powder and mix well.

Step 3
Add tomato puree and mix again. Sauté for 5 minutes till you can see the oil separates from the tomato paste.

Step 4
Add kidney beans and mix well. Add 1 cup water and salt and stir to mix.

Step 6
Add garam masala powder and mix and cook for 5-7 minutes.

Step 7
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.

Serve it with rice or it can be served with pasta as well.
So give it a try and let me know.
