A tangy preparation of rajma is combined with cooked rice to make a lip-smacking Rajma Chawal, which stays fresh in the tiffin box for at least 5 hours. It’s almost like having rice with a rajma curry to accompany it, but the best part is that it comes in a convenient one-dish package that is easy for kids to handle at lunch time. We have taken care to make the chawal a little moist, so that it does not get dry after a few hours. So, do not worry if you end up with a slightly moist rice when done; that is how it is meant to be. For the short break pack some Murukku ( Tiffin Treats) in another tiffin.

For any mom with a fussy eating toddler, it feels absolutely delightful to see them eating a healthy food like this without coaxing! This recipe is simple, healthy and we can be rest assured that it will turn out good. My 3 yr old relished it and so did we.Thanks Tarla aunty.

Another great combo. I would have the Rajma with Brown rice to make it healthier. Rajma in any form is a great source of protein and great for vegetarians like me.
