    3. Heat oil, add curry leaves and sliced green chillies.
    4. Pour the onion paste and fry on medium heat, till the paste turns pinkish in colour.
    5. Pour the tomato paste and stir. Fry on high heat for 5-8 mins, till the mixture is slightly reduced.
    6. After this add the boiled rajma along with the water and salt. Cover and cook for 10 mins so that the masala blends well with the rajma. Once done, sprinkle the garam masala and stir.
