Dhaba Style Rajma Gravy Recipe – Kidney Beans Gravy Recipe with step wise pictures.
Dhaba style rajma curry which is super easy to make and needs just few spices. It doesn’t need onions or tomatoes in this.
Rajma curry is my favourite, i love to have it with either rice or roti. Specially it taste amazing with plain cooked basmati rice. You can make this curry mild or spicy or extra spicy by increasing the chilli level. This curry is super easy to make, all you have to do is cook with few spices. You will get a delicious curry in few minutes. This curry can be stored for few days in fridge, actually the flavours will increase as it stands.
The main thing you have to remember is cooking the rajma really well. Normally it takes 3 to 4 whistle for a soaked rajma. You have to soak rajma for atleast 8 hours or overnight. If you are cooking it in a regular pot, cover the rajma with water and bring it to a boil, simmer for 45 mins to 1 hour or till tender. So it is better to invest in a pressure cooker for fast cooking. In a pressure cooker it takes under 15 mins to cook.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
