Rajma Tikki

Rajma  or Kidney beans are a rich source of iron that increases your energy levels. These beans are also high in fiber, protein and complex carbohydrates that stabilize blood sugar levels. There are many other health benefits of Rajma which are good for your hair and skin too.

For day 2 under "1 Ingredient different categories" am here with a healthy and tasty snack " Rajma Tikki". Mashed rajma along with some spices and flours makes these tikki not only crunchy but also gives wonderful taste. Perfect for evening snack and a  great appetizer for parties.
