Home Style Rajma Curry / Red Beans Curry

IMG_20170714_170843_wmRajma is the most loved dish in North India eaten along with rice. This is probably my favorite and signature dish which I can eat all the time. I enjoy making Rajma regardless of that it takes bit more time in order to get the correct flavor and taste which is most like mostly in North India.

I didn’t post this for long time but it’s my signature dish so far. This is the 5th time I have prepared this and this time I had it with brown rice. Brown rice are awesome however those who want taste can go with white rice. Its just that brown is healthier as it contains complex carbohydrates than white rice. If it comes between chapati and brown rice also, brown are much better than having a chapati.

  • Boiled Red Beans 1 Cup
  • Chopped Onions 2 Nos.
  • Chopped Tomatoes 2 Nos.
  • 1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
