Oil 2 tbsp

1. Soak the rajma overnight in water or 1 hour in hot water.
2. Pressure cook rajma with water ,salt and turmeric powder.Do not throw the water.
3. Heat oil in a pan/kadhai and add the tej patta in it.After that add the grounded onion, ginger-garlic paste.Fry till it becomes golden in colour.
4. Add the tomato paste and all the masalas and cook till the oil separates from the masalas.
5. Add the pressure cooked rajma with the water and mix it well.If necessary add a little salt and water.
6. Cook for 4-5 minutes and mash some of the rajma roughly(to thicken the gravy).
