  • Pressure Cooker
  • Pan / Kadai / Wok



  • 1 cup Red Kidney Beans ( Jammu Variety )soaked overnight
  • 1/4 cup Fried Onions
  • 4 Tomato
  • A small piece Ginger
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder

  • Firstly wash the kidney beans very well and soak them overnight or for 6 - 8 hours.
  • In the morning or after they have soaked, rinse them well. Pressure cook the kidney beans with enough water and salt.
  • Now make a fine paste of fried onions, tomato, ginger and garlic. Once the paste is done heat a teaspoon of oil and saute the paste. Add red chilly powder, turmeric powder,coriander powder and gram masala. Cook the spices with the masala till oil separates.
  • Now mix this spice paste to the cooked beans. Add water to adjust the consistency of the gravy. We do not want a very thick gravy.
  • Pressure cook for one more whistle. Open the cooker after the pressure is released.
  • Now take a bun, cut it into pieces. Place in a serving bowl. Pour a ladle full of the prepared Rajma over the bun, soaking them well.
