Rajma urad Dal is a protein rich recipe, perfect combination of kidney beans and urad dal, flavoured with butter and kasoori methi, goes well with rice as well as rotis. My favorite Sunday Lunch. In this recipe I have used the small variety of Rajma as it cooks quickly and taste good too instead of whole urad dal I have used green urad dal with skin. Ingredients required and detailed instructions for the recipe are as follows:
Rajma or kidney beans- 1 cup
Green urad dal-2 tablespoon
Onion-1 big chopped
Salt –to taste
Ginger-1 teaspoon grated
Garlic-15-20 pods (crushed)
Kasoori methi- 1 teaspoon
Red chilli powder- 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- ½ teaspoon
Oil- ½ tablespoon
garam masala powder-1/2 teaspoon
wash and soak rajma and urad dal in plenty of water overnight.
Next day change the water, pressure cook dals with salt, green chillies , turmeric , chopped tomatoes and grated ginger till soft, approx 20-25 minutes( first 3-4 whistles on high flame and then adjust the flame to medium to low.
Mash dal with churner.
Again boil the dal on high flame.Heat oil in a tadka pan or kadhai, add chopped onions roast them till golden brown in color, add garlic to it as it cooks and pinkish in color add red chillipowder to it.
Add tadka to boiling dal mix well, add garam masala powder and kasoori methi.
Notes: You can substitute butter with cream it tastes good too.
After preparing as time goes on this dal thickens , and it taste enhances with course of time, hence adjust the consistency accordingly and try to prepare before 2 hours of serving for better taste.
