Red kidney bean/Rajma rice is one of a lunch box rice variety I usually prepare for my hubby and kids. They love to have this with a boiled egg. This is easy to prepare and tastier one.
Soak red kidney bean overnight. Drain water and keep aside. Chop onion and tomato.
Heat pressure cooker, add oil, add crushed cardamom, dried cloves and star anise and fry for a minute.
Add ginger garlic paste and sauté, add onion and fry it until transparent.
Add tomato, fry until soft. Add turmeric powder, chilli powder and coriander powder one by one.
Add rice and fry for a minute. Add 3 cups of water and salt to taste.
Cover the pressure cooker and cook on medium heat for 3-4 whistles or until done.
