Ingredients

White Rajma is my new find and as soon as I saw this at the grocery shop, without second thought, I took it. It was tempting as a bean, would it not be as sundal when you make it?

Variations

You can easily make it in bulk for serving to your guests in the Navaratri festival season. Cooking the coconut as ground mixture gives more shelf life, it won’t get spoilt soon comparitively.

  • Spicy – add more green chilli or temper with red chilli to make it spicier.
  • Deluxe – add grated mango/ chopped mango to make more tasty. If not for Navaratri, you can even saute onion after tempering and use a garlic clove while grinding.
  • Kid friendly – add grated carrot to make it colorful. Serve with some crushed potato chips topped.
  • Bachelor friendly – Use grated coconut (frozen found in shop) and use chopped green chilli and ginger while tempering, instead of grinding everything.

Storage

If you want you can refrigerate after cooling completely and reheat for later. Or just finish the tempering part and do the coconut part later to make sure it stays good for longer through out the day.

Top tip

  • Adding salt while cooking, using right amount of water is must for perfect texture of white rajma.
  • Without salt, it may get mushy.
  • Use oil generously as it may turn dry if you skimp. Using coconut oil in the end gives fullest flavor and gives the required moisture too.
  • Be generous with asafoetida to nullify the gastric properties of legume. Using ginger also reduces heart burn effect caused by legumes.
  • Make sure to change the water (discard) after soaking rajma, do not add the same soaked water.
  • You can soak the legume and drain, freeze up to 3 months for later use. Though we may not do this for Navaratri as we are offering to god, you can use this tip to include legumes in your diet.
  • Defrost by leaving in counter top for an hour and pressure cook as usual.
