rajma masala curry recipeWe do a kootu variety with this rajma but other than that I have not tried this beans in any!had a thought to do punjabi rajma for long time and this time too it didn’t happen.I was all set soaking the rajma the previous day and suddenly thought to do a gravy with rajma (rajma masala curry recipe)which would go with rice,so I was searching for the recipe and found one from sharmis passion and the dish came out decently good.That day I did some simple beetroot dry curry/stirfry ,rasam and this rajma masala to go with plain rice.rajma masala curry recipeIt was the time when I was about to finish my kitchen work I got a call from my uncle that he will come for lunch then I thought it will go simple if I serve only rajma curry and poriyal so I prepared hot tomato biriyani with onion raita and valakkai bajji.My uncle wholeheartedly appreciated and enjoyed the whole lunch menu.I was quite pleased to hear it from him and I did this rajma masala curry recipe as thick solid gravy for rice but if you like it to have as thin gravy then it will go well with chappathi and phulkas.There is no need to add butter but I have added! always cook rajma nicely tender otherwise they are hard to digest and uncooked rajma never tastes good.
