Blogging Marathon# 47: Week 3/ Day 1
Theme: Combo Dishes
Dishes: Rajma Chawal
We are starting our 3rd week of Blogging Marathon today and my theme for this week ‘Combo Dishes’. Valli gave us a list of combo dishes and we have to select 3 and post under this theme. So the first combo I chose is Rajma Chawal.
Rajma or red kidney beans cooked with tomatoes and spices is a very filling and hearty dish that is perfect for this time of the year. Served with chawal or rice, there is nothing more comforting than that. I didn’t use a whole lot of spices in the curry since I was cooking for the kids, but you can definitely amp up the spice volume, if that is how you like it 🙂
I used a can of kidney beans since I wasn’t really planning to make this dish. If you plan ahead then soak about 1cup of kidney beans overnight or at least 8~9 hours. Then pressure cook them or boil them until tender. Drain and use as per the recipe.
