Rajma (Red Kidney Beans) Rasam - BM 13 - Week 2 - Day 5

Rajma Rasam:

Rasam with Rajma?? Don’t be surprised yes follow the same method of making Ullavalu Rasam and you have it. It tastes great and it is thick in consistency. Only thing is I made it little lengthy.

Ingredients:
Rajma (Red Kidney beans) – 12 to 15 beans
Tomato – 1/2

Tamarind Water (medium consistency) – 3 tsp
Crystal Salt – 1 tbsp
Rasam Powder – 2 tbsp
Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp
Jaggery – a small piece
Water – as required

For seasoning:
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Oil – 2 tsp
Curry leaves – few (optional)
Coriander leaves – few (optional)

Method:
Wash rajma and soak it overnight
I wanted to try if it sprouts (ha ha) – optional step – So left them in clean handkerchief and put them in a vessel which contained fresh water in the morning
Drain the water and cook it for 3 to 4 whistles
Add tomato along with rajma and blend it
Heat oil in a kadai and once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add curry leaves
Add tamarind pulp, rasam powder, crystal salt, jaggery, grounded rajma mixture, cilantro and allow it to boil nearly for 10 minutes
Rasam is ready.
