    I’ve always loved kidney beans, and other beans, in soups and chilies. This looks like a great way to cook them!

    Purabi, this is wonderful! (Not only your tips on buying & making them, but your recipe with all those luscious spices!) I could live on beans and rice, but this takes them to a whole new level. Thank you! (I KNEW there was a reason I bought plain yogurt yesterday — I have everything else in my pantry — I smell dinner!) 🙂

    Have not tasted that before but it look’s like a nice pair with capati…definitely on the list to try. Hey Babe…I’ve made mango-pineapple capati the combination of Malay-Indian version. Do drop by and be my jury…

    I make a probably inauthentic kidney bean curry but I don’t know what the Indian name is. I love it so much. I’ve never made kidney beans from scratch although I make most of my other beans from scratch. I want to try your recipe. It looks so yummy!

    Completely loved this post Purabi, I had never known about such detailed facts of the Rajma – my husband doesnt like it although I do and I was always told it is good for people who have kidney stones, now I will view this legume from a whole new perspective. Thanks for posting, I love ur blog!
