Rajma is a traditional Punjabi dish and if I'm honest not one of my favourites when I was growing up. Now however, I love it because it's a bit like a vegetarian, Indian version of chilli which is really warming and homely. It makes a great alternative on bonfire night and I bet most people wouldn't even realise thats its completely vegetarian.
It is really important that you cook the beans thoroughly and don't be afraid of using a pressure cooker either. If however you want to cheat then you can.....(shhhhhh please don't tell my mum I said this) use tinned kidney beans instead. Just make the masala sauce and add you beans - make sure you add a heaped spoon of garam masala and coriander to finish.
Note: You can use tinned kidney beans for this dish so start at step 4 to cook the masala and then just add the tinned beans.
