Rajma Masala – Red Kidney Beans Gravy

November 24, 2016 Dals/Gravies  6 comments

Rajma Masala is an authentic Punjabi dish made with red kidney beans, cooked in onion-tomato gravy along with spices. This comes to my rescue when I run out of veggies. Moreover its Chotu’s favourite, so always happy to make this. It goes well with roti, naan, paratha & rice. I personally like to have it even with dosa or bread ๐Ÿ™‚

I had posted this recipe long back, now updated with full video recipe!!

Tips:

  1. Pressure cooking time depends upon the type of rajma.
  2. Cooking the rajma in the spiced onion-tomato gravy makes it very tasty. So let it boil in low-medium flame.
  3. Fresh cream is optional. U can skip it as per your choice. But do not boil after adding cream. Just heat & switch it off.
  4. U can add cashew paste instead of fresh cream too..
