Rajma Aloo Masaledaar/Kidney Beans & Potato Tomato Curry

Chickpeas and Kidney beans are our favourite legumes and i cant survive without these both beans. Obviously my pantry will always have these both dry beans while my freezer will always have already soaked and frozen beans. I have already shared about how to make frozen beans in few of my posts. And those frozen beans are really handy if you dont have enough time to soak your beans or if you have completely forgotten to soak your beans. Just pressure cook those frozen beans and your beans are ready to cook with. You doesnt even need to thaw those beans. How easy na, i have been following this method since a while and i dont regret for preparing these frozen beans whenever time permits.

Aloo Rajma Tamatar Sabji, Tamatar, Aloo & Rajma Sabji


Coming to my today's post, this Masaledaar is one of the delicious side dish to serve along with some Indian flatbreads. Yes its quite easy to make and trust me one can enjoy this Aloo rajma sabji thoroughly as a spice mix used in this sabji will definitely tickle your tastebuds. Easy to make this sabji calls for some cooked cubed potatoes and cooked kidney beans, pureed tomatoes and a spice mix which is grounded freshly to bring the flavor. This curry is completely no onion no garlic to enjoy even with pulao. And this dish is going to be a part of this week's blogging marathon as am running with colourful dishes as theme.

I usually have a stock of frozen cooked chickpeas in my freezer. I never tried freezing soaked beans/chickpeas. This a cool idea. Rajma aloo masaledaar looks delicious.
