Hello Friends!

Rajma Rice is one of the most common and loved recipes of all north Indians. No matter which house you go to, they will serve your Rajma Rice if you are vegetarian. It is the king and queen of all dishes in North India.

People have different tastes when it comes to making this recipe. Some people use a lot of spices and garam masala while others use a lot of tomatoes and onion. Some people don’t use tomatoes at all. My recipe is very simple, and it will surely give you the true taste of Rajma with a good taste of spices.

Let’s see how easily we can this recipe at home.

Step 5: Boil the beans with enough water in a pressure cooker. This will take about 20-25 minutes.
Step 6: Once the pressure releases from the cooker, use a strainer to strain the beans and add them to the onion tomato masala prepared in the pan. Saute the beans well in the pan and then add them back to the pressure cooker and let them cook on low flame for about 10-15 minutes.

Absolutely! Rajma without rice is a waste of dish!

Rajma Chawal is a very famous and delicious recipe but for me, it is always difficult to cook Rajma. Do you have any tip to cook it easy and fast?

Oh really? Why so? Cooking rajma is so easy. You can follow my recipe and trust me it won’t take you any more than 20 minutes. The rajma boiling time will be around 20-25 minutes. What challenge exactly you have been facing?
