Rajma Dry Curry | Rajma Recipes

Rajma Dry Curry Recipe
Rajma / Kidney Bean is highly nutritious and also has a good source of cholesterol lowering fiber in it so I pick a pack of it every month. I have already tried rajma masala, rajma paratha so wanted to try something different.Whenever I hear the name 'rajma' it echoes to me as 'rajamma' as prakash raj says it in the movie Abhiyum Nanum which is one of my fav movies :)

This curry recipe is from my sis when I needed to quick fix a lunch for me and mittu. This is a easy and flavourful curry which goes well with rotis and even with rice. There are different varieties of rajma one being the red kidney bean and other one is what I've used here. You can try it with any type you like.

My Notes:
  • You can make it even more gravy kind by adding tomatoes and serve it with rotis.
  • We love this curry with rice and soft rotis too.
  • You can use this recipe for red kidney bean or any variety of bean like mochai etc.
  • Adjust spice level according to your taste , the above measures is for a mild spicy curry.
