The first time I tasted this delicious dish is when I doing my engineering course. My friend had hosted the lunch for all of us and his mother cooked this delicious dish for us. The dish was so lip-smacking that all of us gathered around her and pestered her to share the recipe. Once back home we did try to replicate the dish but we could not match her taste at all. From then it is always been bettering myself. Today I tried the same recipe in Nutri-pot or the electric pressure cooker and this Nutripot Rajma Masala is so quick and easy to make that I will be making this often.

Nutri-Pot Rajma Masala

Preparing any dish in the nutri-pot is easier than preparing it in the stove top is my observation. Here I have soaked the bean overnight. Then sauteed the masala consisting of onion, tomato, ginger garlic and chilly and then added the dry masala powders along with the salt. Later the soaked bean is added to this and the required amount of water too. Now the whole mixture is pressure cooked in the rajma setting available on the nutri-pot. Very easy to make andΒ  I feel this way of cooking retains a lot more of the infused flavours.

 

I have also cooked rajma masala on stove -top which can be seen here.

For the group Shhh cooking secretly, I have been paired with Narmadha who blogs at Nam’s corner. Her posts on mango this season are too good. Check out her blog space for all of those delicious desserts. Narmadha suggested that I use butter and coriander to whip up a Punjabi dish which is the suggested theme for this month and I chose this Nutri-pot rajma masala for the theme. I suggested that she use dal and green chillies and she has come up with a very delicious Dal Makhni recipe. Hop on to her blog and check out her recipe

Delicious looking rajma. Love the colour of the curry. I’ve tried out this curry in India with red beans bought from the shop and have failed to make them perfectly as even though I soak the beans overnight they still remain hard.

Wow what a beautiful colour. Rajma masala looks lip-smackingly delicious. Loved the use of butter instead of oil. It definitely enhance the taste. Lovely share.

One of my favorite dishes! Your recipe is so simple…just like the dish is supposed to be. When traveling in Punjab, you come across so many people selling a plate of rajma-chawal on road side stalls… simple, filling, and delicious meal!

By the way, what is a Nutri-pot? Sounds like an Insta-pot… I sometimes feel I want lesser and lesser gadgets in kitchen and somehow the plain old pressure cooker works for most dishes πŸ™‚

Veena please don’t tempt me with the nutripot recipes. You make want to buy it. As for the rajma it sounds like a breeze in the nutripot. Will love to try it.

Rajma masala looks very tempting with rich gravy. Would love to have it hot pulkas. At my starting stage of cooking it was a big failure as I soaked rajma for less time. Later I learned the process now it’s my fav.

This looks so good! Ive been making a few dishes on my Nutri-pot but haven’t yet tried making Rajma masala in it. Now with your recipe as a guide, I should get to it, as the weather is becoming pleasant, and perfect for a dinner of rajma chawal.

Rajma masala looks so rich and delicious. It is my husband favourite curry but I have never tried it. Thanks for explaining step by step.Will try this soon.

Veena, you are really the queen of nutripot. so glad to see so many recipes done with absolute ease. Now I have to try this too… I have a long list from your blog
