Rajma Rice

Rajma Rice is one of the healthy one pot meal perfect to be made on weekends and can be accompanied with simple raita. This is my mothers recipe, and I have done few add ons by adding khada masala as she never uses them in the dish. Rajma is also known as Red Kidney Beans.

Check my other Rajma recipe here below...
