Kidney Beans, red – Rajma
Rajma (Red kidney beans) is a Punjab’s favorite dish, extremely popular in North India. There is nothing like a hot and spicy plate of Rajma garnished with chopped onions and green chilies accompanied with chawal (rice). Rajama and chawal is a very famous combination and a complete meal in itself.
Rajma (kidney beans) are first soaked before boiling then simmered into spicy gravy made with onion, garlic, tomatoes and traditional Indian spices. Kidney beans are named for their kidney shape. They are high in fiber, high in vegetable protein and high in nutrients. Rajma can be made hot or spicy according to the taste. Beside rice Rajma can be served with any kind of Indian bread.
