Rajma Rice

For day 6 of BM 13 here is another protein based rice recipe which my older one is fond of. I tweak the masala to suit my mood and availability of time and so feel free to change the spices used to suit your taste.

Ingredients - 

Red Kidney Beans/ Rajma 1/2 cup [soaked, optionally pre heated and boiled]
Rice 1 1/2 cups
Onions chopped 1/2 cup
Garlic 1 clove
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Chat Masala as needed
Chana Masala as needed
Red Chilli Powder as needed
Lemon juice as needed
Seasoning(Oil 1 Tbsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp)

Rajma Rice

Method Of Preparation -

Cook Rice and get the rajma boiled too in advance so it is a breeze to fix a lunch box! [I usually freeze pre treated rajma and keep it handy.]

In a heated wok/kadai, add oil and cumin seeds. After the cumin seeds start to brown saute the minced garlic and onion.

After the onions are golden brown, add in the boiled beans and sprinkle salt, turmeric, and all the masala powders and mix well until the mixture becomes a little dry.

Reduce the heat and mix in the cooled rice. Adjust the spice level as needed and remove from fire.

Squeeze in some lemon juice and it is ready to go in a lunch box!
