Description Edit

Kidney beans make an excellent nutritous basis for a vegetarian dish - and this is a popular Indian method for cooking them. Called "rajma" - the kidnet beans are cooked either on their own - or in this Punjabi variation - with potatoes.

Ingredients Edit

Add all the dry spices and stir fry for a few mins

Then add the drained tins of cooked kidney beans. (MAKE SURE THEY ARE ALREADY COOKED kidney beans - as these beans are poisonous if not soaked in water overnight before cooking!). Then add some more water - perhaps a couple of glassed - and bring to boil and let simmer for around 20 minutes - with the lid off - so that the water slowly evaporates.
