How to Make Special Rajma Gravy

  • Pre-preparation:
  • Soak the beans in water for at least 8 hours or best leave it overnight.
  • Beat the curd in a blender and keep aside before adding the seasoning.
  • Pressure cook the beans with salt till soft and easy to mash.
  • Once cooked remove from water and add the beans in a blender and blend till coarse and not a fine paste.
  • Remove and keep aside. Do not throw away the water it was pressure cooked in.
  • It will help dilute the beans later.
  • In a heavy bottom wok add oil and ghee and heat.
  • Add bay leaf, star anise, cloves, cardamom and saute till you get the aroma.
  • Ensure it's not burnt but just fried enough to release the flavours.
  • Add, chopped ginger, garlic, onion and sugar. Let it caramelize.
  • Once brown add the tomatoes and cook till well mashed.
  • Reduce heat completely and add the beaten curd.
  • Once mixed well add the seasoning ingredients and stir till well incorporated.
  • To this mixture add the blended beans and stir again till all the ingredients come together.
  • Let it simmer for ten minutes to infuse all the masala in the beans.
  • Serve hot with accompaniments garnished with coriander and a swirl of fresh cream.
