Comfort food at its best… rajma chawal… probably close to being the national dish of India it’s so loved by all! A dish prepared from boiled or pressure-cooked kidney beans with creamy, rich, onion, tomato-based gravy. One of those one-dish-wonders that make you want to get comfy on the sofa… you need nothing else… just a big bowl full of saucy, steaming hot rajma with basmati rice.
This is my Punjabi Mamas’ way of cooking rajma. She uses red kidney beans and adds cocoa beans which give a thickness and consistency to the dish.
