Rajma Dosa with Pudina Chutney

Men can be so stubborn on certain aspects like shopping, going to a hindi movie and eating oats. Now adding to the list is Rajma i.e. Kidney beans, a major no no for Hubby. 

Even the famous famous rajma chawal couldn't make him like the red bean and the a sulking face at the dining table makes me go nuts. Just FYI gentlemen, Kidney beans/ rajma are rich in proteins , irons, act like energy booster, prevents bad cholesterol and many more. But no he just wont eat, So I find a better way. Smash the beans into a batter , add aromatics and form a savoury pancake served with spicy tangy chutney. And this he eats, things-we-wives-need-to-do!!

Ingredients: Serves 2 

  • 100 gms kidney beans/Rajma: soaked in water for minimum 4-5 hour. 
  • 1/2 tbsp: Turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp: Chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon: Asafoetida/Hing powder
  • 1 tbsp: Coriander powder
  • Salt to taste
  • For tempering:
    • 1-2 Tbsp: Oil
    • 1 tbsp: Jeera
    • pinch of Asafoetida
    • Chilli flakes or freshly chopped chillies (optional)


Method:
  • Soak the rajma beans for over 4 -5 hours and then process them in a blender into a fine paste. 
  • Get it out in a bowl and add the aromatics, give it a good mix.
  • Heat the oil in a tempering vessel and add in jeera and hing. 
  • Add the sizzling tempering to the rajma batter and mix well. 
  • Next, ladle out spoonful of the mixture on the greased hot pan. 
  • Let it cook on one side with the pan lid covered for a minute then flip and cook on the other side. 
  • Rajma is a tough bean hence don't be in a haste to pull it out of the pan, let it cook thoroughly. 
  • Then wait no longer, serve with pudina chutney.
