Plump kidney beans simmered in a spicy tomato based gravy is one of my favorite ways to enjoy this earthy legume. Essentially an Indian version of chili that so many of us in the Western world enjoy, there are endless versions of this curry enjoyed throughout India. Rather easy to cook up, you will eagerly be awaiting dinner as the spicy aroma fills the kitchen. Rajma is particularly popular in North India but also enjoyed in South India as well with multiple variations.
This is a substantial dish that goes well with rice and / or any Indian flatbread of your choosing and side vegetable dish - a perfect meal for a cold winter day but comforting and enjoyable anytime of the year.
