Rajma Paneer

Rajma Paneer - A double Protein combo :)

I always used to cook Rajma in a typical manner. Though it is very healthy didnt seem so interesting to make it often. This time i had some paneer in my fridge and thought will add it to Rajma and make it in a different way. Came out well and people at home liked it :)

Ingredients :
Rajma / Red Kidney Beans - 200 Gms (soaked in water for atleast 8-10 hours)
Paneer / Cottage Cheese - 200 gms
Onion - 3
Tomato - 3
Ginger Garlic paste (optional) - little
Saunf - 1/2 spoon
cinnamon stick - 1 small piece
Garam Masala - 1 spoon
Oil / Salt / Chilly powder - as reqd

Method :
Soak Rajma for 10 hours. Cook for 2 - 3 whistles and keep it aside.
In a kadai heat oil and add saunf & cinnamon then add ginger garlic paste and saute till raw smell goes. Then add the onions and fry till onions turn color.
Next add tomatos, salt, chilly powder, Garam masala powder and cook well. Let the tomato and onion get well blended.
Now add the cooked Rajma and add water based on the consistency of the gravy. Let it cook for 5 - 6 minutes.
Then cut paneer into cubes and add to the gravy. Mix well and cook for another 5 - 6 minutes. You may add cornflour mixed with water if the gravy is not thick.
Rajma paneer is ready to be served with Roti / Puri
