ROTI AND RAJMA

My aunt makes rajma so.. well. I like it so much. When we visited her, she served us her signature dish. My daughter loved too. She asked me to prepare for her lunch. Usually her lunch will be chapati or parathas. Since I want to give her a nutritious lunch, I buy whole wheat and add 200 gms of soya bean and 200 gms of Channa to 3 kilos of wheat and grind it in machine(Chakki).I feel her protein supplement has also taken care. With cucumber raita or plain curd with salad (snack), her balanced lunch is ready.




Ingredients

Wheat flour – 1 cup

Rajma (kidney Beans) – 1 cup

Onion – 1Tomato – 2

Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp

Chili powder – 1 tsp

Salt to taste

Garam masala – ½ tsp

Oil, cumin seeds for tempering

Cilantro for garnishing

Method

Knead wheat by combing with water and salt to make a dough.

Soak rajma for 8 hours and pressure cook adding salt

Heat oil in a pressure pan and pop up cumin seeds.

Add chopped onions, ginger garlic paste.

When the raw smell goes, add chopped tomatoes.

When it leaves oil, add chili powder, salt and garma masala.

Cook for some time and add boiled rajma and give two whistles.

Garnish with cilantro.

Serve with Roti.

Hi Vidhya,

I use the same recipe for making Rajma. But even after its cooked in the masala, rajma has a raw taste, as if the masala doesnt get inside.. or like the flavours doesnt mix! Can anything be done.? Kindly help!

vidhas

Thanks Passion for life
