Rajma, also known as kidney beans, is a variety of common beans used in several cuisines worldwide. Whether it is the famous Mexican tacos or our own desi rajma chawal, kidney beans are packed with nutrients such as protein and fibre.

While many Indians prefer eating rajma with rice, there are other ways to cook it, including rajma biryani. Even though biryani is often associated with meat or vegetable, you need to try rajma biryani once to savour the flavour of this versatile bean.

Before we dive deeper into the rajma biryani recipe, let us look at its nutritional value.

  • Salt to taste
  • Saffron (kesar) a few strands (optional)

Method

  • Clean and soak rice in water for 20 minutes. Drain all the water and keep the rice ready.
  • To make rajma biryani, start with heating 2 tablespoons of ghee in a rice cooker.
  • Next, add ginger-garlic paste, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, green cardamom powder, cloves, green cardamoms, green chilli paste, and bay leaves.
  • You can avoid adding chilli paste if you want.
  • Then add boiled rajma followed by rajma stock, ½ cup browned onions, ginger strips, yoghurt, lemon juice, coriander leaves, and 2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves, and salt.
  • Stir all the ingredients until mixed well.
  • Add this mix to a rice cooker and spread the rice over it. Garnish the rice with remaining mint, browned onion, and saffron strands.
  • Add a tablespoon of ghee on top. This step is optional and can be skipped if you don’t want your biryani to be very greasy.
  • Cook for 12-15 minutes or till the cooker comes on warm mode.
  • Once the biryani is cooked, transfer it into a serving bowl and serve it hot.

Pro tip: Always use organic products since they have more beneficial nutrients, like antioxidants, compared with their conventionally-grown counterparts. Also, organic products have a better taste since they are less exposed to harmful chemicals found in insecticides and pesticides.

There you have it, an easy rajma biryani recipe that you can cook regardless of your culinary skills.
