Punjabi Kidney Bean Curry - Rajmah


The northern plains and the mountain Himalayan areas of India get very cold at night and there is no central heat. Dishes like Rajmah are cooked on the coals of the fire as they smolder overnight. Simple to make and delicious, this popular vegetarian (high protein) dish is almost always a compulsory part of the menu. All the ingredients are put into a pot and left overnight to cook. During the night, the beans first boil and then cook slowly, as the coals eventually burn through. The beans are then flavored and served the next day. The resulting dish has become a winter/sping lifestyle dish.
