Rajma Masala / Red Kidney bean Masala

Red kidney beans which is full of protein and minerals.  Whenever I want to prepare a side dish with this I used to prepare DAL MAKANI.  When I soaked rajma that day I taught of preparing gravy with it.  It turned out so nice and we had it with rotis.  I used tomato puree for making this instead of full tomato. The taste of the puree / colour  and even adding pav bajji masala made it look different and I got the good taste subji with rajma.

Red kidney beans (Rajma) ¾ cup
Onion 1no (chopped finely)
Tomato Paste ¼ cup
Greenchili 2no (finely chopped)
Ginger garlic paste ½ tsp
Garam masala powder ½ tsp
Red chili powder 1tsp
Pav baji masala powder 1tsp
Salt to taste
Butter 1tbsp
Oil As required

Fresh cream 1 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Soak the Rajma overnight   and  pressure cook , Heat the oil/butter in a pan  and fry the onions /green chili till done and  add garam masala ,add  ginger-garlic paste fry till the raw flavor goes and add all the spices given and add tomato puree cook till u get a good aroma, for  3 minutes.
Add the mixture to the boiled kidney beans. Add little water and salt. Crush few rajma with ladle so that the taste increases. Close and Cook for 15 min.Garnish with Cream and coriander.  Serve hot with chappati or nan or roti.
