Rajma Masala and Steam Rice

Today I wanna share “Rajma Masala with Steam Rice” under combo theme, which makes me hungry any time. Rajma masala is one of popular gravy from Punjabi cuisine. Rajma cooked until too soft and mashy, which easy to melt in mouth and serves with jeera rice in Punjab.

Kidney beans are rich source in proteins and nutrition. You have to soak the beans in the water for overnight and then cook in pressure cooker and add onion and tomatoes masala for thick gravy. You can serve rajma masala with rice or chapatti both. Rajma Rice is my favorite combo which I can eat anytime without thinking.
