My Notes:

  • I used the lighter color rajma variety so it got cooked well in 4 whistles itself.So the number of whistles for pressure cooking depends on the variety of rajma.
  • Amma always adds coconut and switches off for any sundal and poriyal as raw coconut is of no cholestrol so its better not to cook coconut for more time.
  • I always add little less water while cooking rajma so that I can use the cooked water too.
  • You can aeven add 1/4 tsp coriander seeds while roasting , gives a great flavour to the sundal.
