Rajma Masala


1 1/2 cup Rajma (Kidney beans)
1 big Onion
Green chillies as desired
2 chopped tomotoes
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp Rajma masala powder (any brand available in market)
1 tsp corn powder


1. Soak Rajma for atleast 18 hours. If they are properly soaked for long time.., the beans really cook well.
2. Take the soaked beans into a small pressure cooker, add enough water, 1 tsp salt and cook for upto 7 whistles.
3. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and shahjeera to it. Add chopped onions, chillies and fry them well. Add, chopped tomotoes. Let it cook for 2 mins.
4. Add the cooked beans, Rajma masala powder, chilli powder, pinch of turmeric and mix them well. Add 1 cup water to it. Adjust the salt and let it cook for 5 min  in a very low flame.
5. The mixture should get properly cooked by now. Add and mix well the corn powder which helps thickening the mixture slightly. Adjust the corn powder if needed. But if you add more, you need to adjust the spices accordingly.
6. Garnish the curry with cilantro and serve hot with chapathi/pulka.
