Rajma Curry

I always shied away from making dal curry because it never turned out to be good enough to be a stand alone dish. But this one is different, I can totally enjoy this curry along with some chapathis. This recipe was inspired from http://www.mariasmenu.com/vegetarian/dal-makhani with a few modifications.


Here is the recipe

Ingredients:
  1. Red Kidney Beans (rajmah dal) - 1 pound, clean , wash, and soak overnight (6hrs)
  2. Ghee - 2 tbsp
  3. Oil - 4 tbspn
  4. Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbspn
  5. Whole Red chilly - 2
  6. Tomatoes - 2 big, diced
  7. Onion - 1 big, chopped
  8. Coriander powder - 2 tspn
  9. Garam masala - 1 tbspn
  10. Milk - 1/4 cup
Pressure cook the dal with the whole red chillies, and half of the ginger garlic paste. After 3 whistle, turn the flame off, and remove it from the flame and let it stand for 20mins or till the pressure drops. After that, mash the dal a little.

Heat oil in a pan, then add the onions. Once it is light brown, add the ghee, remaining ginger-garlic paste, tomatoes, coriander and garam masala. Let it cook for 15mins. Then add this masala mix to the mashed dal. Add milk and mix. Let it simmer for 10-15mins.
