Rajma Salad ~ Red Kidney Bean Salad

It is always nice to have light food for dinner. Me and hubby dear have salad and fruits for dinner. We usually have green salad including kale, carrots, lettuce, sprouts and some nuts with store bought seasoning. But for today I wanted to try some thing new which would be filling yet healthy. Few spoons of lime juice and the crunchiness of onions gives this salad a very nice taste and texture.

Beans have significant amounts of fiber. They are also high in protein, complex carbohydrates and iron. One such kind is red kidney bean or rajma. Today I have soaked and boiled these red kidney beans to add to my veggi salad. 

So the final post for BM 50 and the 3rd recipe for the theme "One Ingredient different category"  is Rajma salad or Bean salad. Here goes the recipe.....

                                          

We need:


Rajma 1/2 cup
Chopped cucumber 1/4 cup
Chopped tomato 1/4 cup
Chopped onion 1/4 cup
Chopped cilantro 3 spoons
Lime juice 4 spoons
Salt to taste
Black pepper powder 1/4 spoon

Method:


Soak rajma or kidney beans over night and presser cook till nicely done.
Drain water  and transfer to mixing bowl.
Add chopped onion, cucumber, tomato and cilantro to boiled beans and mix well.
Also add salt, lime juice and black pepper powder.
Mix it thoroughly and serve.

                                       


Note:

Use the water (which you drained after boiling rajma ) to mix chapatti dough  to cook rajma curry, as it is very nutritious.
