How to Make Garlicky Rajma

  • Blend together 1 onion, garlic, ginger, peppercorns, chillies, cloves, cumin and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Mince the remaining onion.
  • Heat the oil and add the bay leaf and minced onion and fry on high heat.
  • When the onion turns light brown, add the blended masala and continue to fry on high heat till oil starts leaving the side of the masala. This will take 12-16 mins.
  • Now add the tomatoes, drained beans and salt.
  • Add water as needed.
  • Usually about 1 cup of water is enough for a good gravy.
