Rajma Kidney Bean Curry Recipe

No Tadka Rajma Recipe in Pressure Cooker

Rajma kidney beans curry is so easy to make and it is good to make in Pressure Cooker. Raw Kidney Beans should be soaked overnight or at least couple of hours to prepare this Rajma Soup.

When we soak Rajma, it help to cook fast and also Soaking makes the Rajma more digestible.

Wash properly and Soak the rajma in plenty of water, which also helps to make their size bigger, so that’s why they cook faster and more tasty. Soaking Rajma kidney beans removes some of the enzymes and sugars that causes intestinal upset.

I never add Baking soda while boiling the rajma, because when we soak them for good amount of time, then there is no need to use anything else to cook them; such as baking soda.

Rajma Chawal (Red Beans with Rice) are favorite of my both sons. They love Rajma.

Rajma Masala- kidney beans curry with onion, tomatoes and spices! This is one of the most popular North Indian curries, best enjoyed with rice. Rajma Kidney Beans Soup is one of the most popular curries made in North India.

I never use canned beans, which are bad for health. I always buy and use fresh Dals(lentils)
