  1. This is what rajma (kidney beans) looks like. This is 1/2 cup rajma (kidney beans). Just as its name suggests, the kidney bean is shaped like a kidney with a reddish brown colour and a thick skin. It has a strong flavour with a slightly sweet aftertaste, a nutty aroma and a chewy texture. The kidney bean is used extensively in Mexican cooking, and also in certain Indian dishes. It is quite popular in Punjabi cuisine.
  2. Rinse the rajma, kidney beans in water 2 to 3 times. It is better to change the water from time to time while you're soaking or cooking the beans. Pouring off the water helps gets rid of the indigestible complex sugars that create gas in your intestine. It also helps to cook the beans thoroughly, until they can be easily mashed with a fork.
  3. Once the rajma is well washed, soak overnight in enough water in a deep glass bowl. Cover and soak. Store soaked rajma in the refrigerator in an airtight container and use within 2 to 3 days. Longer storage could cause an undesirable odour. Soaking rajma does not cause any nutrient loss but makes it easier to digest. Soaking before use is recommended for those with gastric troubles.

Hello, I tried the recipe today exactly as per measurements. But after layering and going to eat I felt rajma gravy is less, curd is sour coz of lemon. Somehow felt the dish was lacking something. What could have gone wrong. How to microwave it. Should hung curd be put later and cheese too after taking out from microwave

   This recipe makes use of sour cream, hence the use of lemon juice. Please ensure to use fresh hung curd or if you wish you can reduce the quantity of lemon juice. The best way is to heat up all ingredients as mentioned in the recipe and layer it. However if you wish to microwave do so for 1 minute. You can also add sour cream and cheese before heating in the microwave, but do not cook for more than 1 minute.
