Simple, easy rajma salad, using chitra rajma the salad is quick to prepare with simple ingredients available in an Indian kitchen. Best side in you lunch thali.
Last time during my grocery shopping, got rajma after a long gap. I always have chana in stock as I make chana masala often. But somehow rajma is not made as much as chana at home. Aj loves my Rajma pulao. It’s just I forget to make it. I saw this organic chitra Rajma and wanted to try this variety. I tried sundal and salad and loved it. I don’t make salad often, prefer sundal, but loved this simple one for a change.
