rajma masala recipe | how to make Punjabi rajma masala recipe with detailed photos and video recipe. Rajma with plain rice is a  very famous combo and my favourite too.

I usually prepare my rajma by following one pot cooking method as the taste of the gravy is quite different and simple.

What I Love about one-pot cooking is the blending of the flavors.This is very easy recipe so beginners can easily make.This curry goes best with rice.rajma-priyascurrynation

I love this chana masala with jeera rice. Kabuli Chana needs 5 to 6 hours to be properly soaked. after soaking it will just take 20 min to be cooked.

I used regular gravy ingredients with a touch of kasoori methi.I also add Onion in the gravy but you can completely avoid.

I have already share Chana masala using one pot cooking and in which i have shared all the details and pictures. Just replace your chana with rajma for making this simple gravy.

If you are beginner then i highly recommend you to please check my soaking and sprouting guide and for the experienced readers do have a look and feel free to share your suggestions.
