Kidney Beans [Rajma] & Vermicelli and Rice pulav


I have lived almost 25 years in Rae-Bareli, a district in Uttar Pradesh, India. My friends always used to ask me Rajma preparation with less oil. I thought of  making this type and also posting it in "bookmark recipe: every tuesday event". In this recipe, i did not fry any ingrediants, so it takes less time for preparation. The taste of this type of Rajma recipe is different but nice. It has low caloires and gets digested easily. So i want to share it with my bloggers friend and i hope they will relish it.

Ingredients:

rajma[red kidney beans]-2cups
onion-2 small, chopped
ginger-garlic paste-1tbsp
tomato-1, chopped
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
red chilly powder-1/2 tsp
garam masala-1/2 tsp
a pinch of hing
oil -1tbsp
Jeera [cumin seeds] -1/2 tsp
salt to taste

                                                              
Method:

Grind onion and tomato coarsly. Add 5 cups water and rajma in the pressure cook. Add ginger garlic  paste, onion-tomato paste and all the spices except garm masala. Pressure cook for 20 minutes on slow flame after one whistle. When it is done, heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, add  hing and Jeera (cumin seeds) to it. When jeera crackles, add it to Rajma curry.

Garnish with coriander leaves before serving.
It is best combined with rice.

  17. That looks really tasty, Santosh. I've never made a pilaf with vermicelli before. It's a wonderfully mild, yet flavorful complement to your spicy rajma.

    Thank you for another great MLLA recipe!
