  1. Wash and soak the kashmiri rajma (red kidney beans) in warm water for overnight or at least for couple of hours.
  2. In a pressure cooker add water, beans, salt, turmeric and a black cardamom
  3. Cook for 15-20 minutes on low heat till beans are tender. (if you don't have a pressure cooker, you can cook on a covered pan for 30-45 mins)
  4. In a nonstick pan, saute chopped onions, tomatoes, freshly grated ginger, garlic and fresh or dry fenugreek.
  5. Fresh Tomatoes & Onions along with Garlic & Ginger give this curry a great flavor.
  6. Season with blend of spices to taste.
  7. Set aside for cooling.
  8. Give this Mix (or Tadka) a quick churn in a mixer to make a smooth paste.
  9. This Tadka can be made ahead and added to boiled beans.
  10. Add Tadka to cooked beans and simmer for another 15-20 minutes.
  11. Finally mix some Amchoor (mango powder, alternatively squeeze half a lemon) for tanginess & fresh homemade garam masala (see method in Tips & Tricks) for flavor.
  12. Add some yogurt or fresh cream to get the silky consistency and rich flavor.
  13. Garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs.
