RAJMA MASALA GRAVY - STEP BY STEP

This is an healthy side dish with rajma ( kidney beans) cooked in spicy sauce made with onions and tomatoes. This goes very well with chapathi's/Naan's/Poori's :)

For this gravy you need

1 cup of rajma
2 onions
2 tomatoes
1 tsp. of ginger-garlic paste
Bay leaf
2 nos. of cloves
1" cinnamon stick 
1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder
1 tsp. of chilli powder
1 tsp. of coriander powder
1/2 tsp. of garam masala powder
Salt 
Oil
Preparation

Wash and soak rajma overnight  or for about 9 - 10 hrs.


Pressure cook until rajma turns soft(5-6 whistles) and keep it aside (don't drain the water ).  Heat oil in a pan, fry cinnamon, cloves and bay leaf.


Add the chopped onions, fry until they turn translucent,now add the ginger garlic paste and saute it until the raw smell extracts from it.


Add the chopped tomatoes along with the chilli powder,turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and  mix them gently, allow the tomatoes to get cooked well.Keep stirring the masala now and then.


When the tomatoes get cooked well along with the masala's, add the cooked rajma along with the water we have pressure cooked and salt. Cover and cook in  low flame until the gravy gets thickened and rajma combines well with the gravy.


when the gravy thickens, garnish with fresh coriander leaves.

Rajma masala gravy is ready to be served..


Serve it hot with Chapathi's/ Poori's and enjoy......... :)
