#Rajma
Rajma Chawal is a very popular combination... carbohydrates and proteins...gives one a soulful satisfaction.
There are various methods of cooking Rajma.
Here's one in which we are using Onions and Tomatoes.
Both give a nice tangy flavour to Rajma. Here I have used small Kashmiri Rajma...

*Soak Rajma for 7..8 hrs.
*Cook in a pressure cooker by adding water just to cover Rajma...also add Salt...cook till soft but not mushy.
*Make a paste of  Onion, Ginger and   Garlic..without adding Water.
*Also grind Tomatoes from the mixer.
*Heat Oil in a pan..add Mustard n Cumin seeds, after it splutters add Onion paste.
*Saute on low flame till Oil leaves the sides..add Termeric, Red Chilli Powder, Coriander Seeds Powder. *Mix properly, you can add 1/4 tsp Salt also.
