Rajma Pulao

Rajma Pulao...........it's yummy, I indeed don't know that it tastes yummy till today morning, when I was just thinking about JFI:Rajma Event, this idea tickled my mind, so just gave it a try, but believe me it's not totally like pulao....but can be said yummy rajma rice........(but felt like giving it a grand name:)Lol :p Pulao) it's a perfect rice dish that one can cook on a lazy day or when feel like having a simple and light meal.......doesn't it sound comfort:)....... we all know that the tanginess of Tomato compliments Rajma very well, so I have made Tomato Raita as a side for it......

Ingredients:
  • 11/2cup rice( soak, cooked), 1/2cup Rajma(soaked over night, cooked), 1tsp.Ginger&Garlic Paste, 1Tomato(pureed), 1 Green Chilli(diced), 1/2Onion(roughly chopped), 1tsp.jeera, 11/2tsp.oil, a pinch turmeric powder, 1/2tsp.dhania powder, 1/4tsp.jeera powder, 1/4tsp.Garam Masala, 1/4tsp.red chilli powder, 2Bay Leaves, 2Cloves, 1''Cinnamon stick, 1 spring curry leaves,1/2cup coriander leaves(chopped), salt to taste.

Method:
  • In a wide pan add oil, once it's hot add bay leaves, cloves, jeera, Cinnamon, curry leaves, once they start to spread the aroma add onions and saute until they are light pink in color, now add ginger garlic past and fry for 2min. on medium heat now add the pureed tomato, salt, turmeric, red chilli powder, dhania powder, jeera powder, garam masala and fry until this masala leaves the oil, then add 2cups of water and rajma to the masala and cook on medium heat until the gravy is very thick. Now add the cooked rice, chopped coriander leaves and toss them well that the gravy coats all the rice, now close it with lid and keep on a low heat for about5-7min.....Serve it warm with Tomato Raita.
This is going to "JFI: Rajma Event" hosted by Divya of Divya-Dilse and Indira of Mahanandi.
