Microwaved Rajmah Chawal / Kidney Beans Rice

Microwaved Rajmah Chawal / Kidney Beans Rice

This is a very popular North Indian (Punjabi) dish and a very comfort meal at my home. This one meal dish served  steaming hot with rice is just delicious. It is rich in iron and protein (Since legumes provide bulk of protein) combined with carbohydrates in the rice and is a wholesome meal. I have also made any dish in the microwave after a long time. It tastes best when served hot,so don't waste time and make this yummy rajmah dal as soon as possible! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!!)
