I learned this recipe from a very special Aunty in India, it just goes to show that Moms have such a special heart for their dear ones, and she still treasures every moment when to talk, perhaps only a couple of times a year. Good old days and good old relationships!
They follow Saatvik diet, so no ginger, no garlic, no meat, no onions in their cooking. That means, no eating out almost always, and no cakes either! However, she makes the best Aloo Paratha (Stuffed spiced potato bread), in my world...This Rajma curry has only 5 ingredients, it is so simple and easy to prepare, and always made with fresh red kidney beans, which are soaked in water atleast for 4-6 hours, water is then drained, beans are washed once again in cold water and then pressure cooked with 3 times the water.
2 cups Rajma, cooked (preferably cooked from fresh red kidney beans as mentioned above)
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ghee
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 cayenne powder
In a 3 qt pot over medium heat, add ghee and when ghee has melted, add all the other ingredients and stir. Add about 1/2 cup of water or more if you like it a bit runny.
Bring it to a boil and reduce heat on low, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring every minute. Serve!]]>
