Rajma chawal is our family favorite , I mean like it has to be on the menu every week.Ofcourse yesterday was the day for it and I had prepared my punjabi rajma masala .I intentionally saved one bowl of rajma /kidney beans for this recipe I saw in the cookery book that I bought recently. I have seen many versions of this delicious rice preparation in the blogosphere but I wanted to try this one. This was for our lunch today and we loved it .This recipe is for December’s third week CCChallenge started by +Srivalli Jetti . So let’s start the recipe . Yum
