Rajmah Curry

Red Kidney beans curry

Rajmah is red kidney beans. Rajmah beans are found not only already cooked and canned here in the US but also in the dried form in many Indian grocery stores. If you are worried about preservatives and salt content, soak the dried Rajmah beans overnight. They will plump up and be ready to cook. This Punjabi dish is a very common staple in the north of India and is eaten with plain rice. Rajmah chawaal! 

Rajmah curry is a very simple yet flavorful dish. I love making it on a day when I am out of ideas as it is very easy to make in a jiffy. 

Curries are what made Indian cuisine famous all over the world. To most people "curry" is simply a thick creamy yellow sauce. Curries could perhaps be more accurately described as the intricate combination of various spices and seasonings with which meat, poultry, vegetables or fish is prepared in a variety of ways to produce a "stew type" dish. This mildly flavored curry is a great introduction to curries.
