This is a curry which I prepared in pressure cooked using minimum oil. You will love this aromatic, spicy Red Kidney Beans curry with some steamed rice. So, sharing the recipe for Rajma masala and hope you all enjoy it making too..
- Rajma / Red Kidney Beans - 1 cup
- 3 finely chopped ripe tomatoes
- 1 finely chopped onion
- Grated ginger - 1 tsp
- Finely chopped Garlic - 1 tbsp
- Carom seeds - 1 tsp
- Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
- Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
- Garam masala - 1 tsp
- Red chili powder - 1 tsp
- Cooking oil - 2 tbsp
- Salt to taste
- Coriander leaves for garnishing
Soak rajma in water overnight. Add Rajma with 3 cups of water and turmeric powder in a pressure cooker and cook it by giving 4-5 whistles. Remove it from the cooker and keep it aside.
Heat the pressure cooker and when it's dry add oil to it. When the oil is warm add cumin seeds, carom seeds, garlic, ginger and onion.
When the onions are golden brown add chopped tomatoes to it. Fry it for few minutes till the tomatoes are nicely cooked and mashed.
Now add cooked Rajma, garam masala, red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and give 2-3 whistles till Rajma is nicely cooked. If you feel the gravy is too dry add little more water.
Now transfer it into a bowl and garnish it with coriander leaves and serve it hot with rice or flat bread.
