Red kidney beans or Rajma

January 2nd, 2006

Red kidney beans soaked overnight
1 big onion (grated)
1 big tomato (grated)
1 tsp of ginger paste
1 tsp of garlic paste
½ tsp cumin seeds
Red chilli powder as you wishes
1 spoon turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala
Fresh bunch of coriander leaves
Salt as per taste

Method to cook
First wash the kidney beans and put them into pressure cooker to boil them with enough water and add some salt to it, pressure cook for atleast 20 minutes and then you can open the cooker and check if the beans are soft or not, if not pressure cook them again. Once kidney beans are boiled, start making your paste for gravy. Take a pan put 3 tsp of cooking oil in it and add cumin seeds to it, then add grated onion, after few minutes add ginger, garlic paste to it, when the paste starts turning into golden color, put turmeric, red chilli, garam masala and little salt to it (remember u have put salt while boiling also) then add grated tomato to the paste, now let the paste simmer for a while, paste will start looking like a thick red gravy, now u can add kidney beans to it and if needed add some water to the gravy. Let it simmer for sometime till the gravy and the beans get mix well.
Garnish it with freshly cut coriander and serve hot with naan or rice.
