Hi folks,

Sorry for the long absence, been a lil busy doing nothing.

Rajma - 2 cups (soaked and pressure cooked)
Onion - 1 big
Tomatoes - 3 (I used Roma tomatoes)
Green chillies - 4 small
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Coriander Pwd - 1 tsp
Red Chilli Pwd - 1 tsp
Rajma Masala - 1 tsp (optional)
Channa Masala - 1 tsp (optional)
Turmeric - a pinch
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Curry leaves - 1 few
Cilantro - handful
Oil - 2 tbsp


Take a heavy bottomed pan, heat 1 tbsp oil in medium flame, add in cumin seeds and curry leaves, after they are done, add in onions and green chillies.
After the onions turn translucent, add the ginger-garlic paste and fry for a minute.
Then, pop in the tomatoes along with 1/2 of water and close the lid.
After the tomatoes are fully done remove from heat and let it cool and grind this mixture into a smooth paste.

Take an other pan, heat the remaining oil, and add the Rajma, salt, turmeric and chilli pwd. Fry for a while.
Add in the onion-tomato paste, all the masalas and let it cook until everything comes together.
Lastly, add in chopped cilantro and you are done.
