SWEET AND TANGY KIDNEY BEANS CURRY
Hello, and welcome to my cooking corner again. Happy Makar Sankranti to all of you. Today I am going to share a recipe of Sweet And Tangy Kidney Beans Curry. Curry is a staple of Indian cuisine. Rajma curry is a famous recipe in every household here. And it is loved by all. In my family too, my son loves to eat rajma curry with steamed rice. The recipe that I have shared is my twisted, delicious version and I wanted to put this idea of adding some dried mint, sugar, and tamarind in the curry into action. You can make a similar curry with other beans available in the markets too. If you guys like my recipes do share your and comments on it. Till now I have mostly made authentic recipes and some have been experimental too. I hope in the new year I try my hands on other kinds of recipes and ideas too expanding my horizons. This curry dish was liked very much in my family and I hope you guys too will try it soon too. Do share your experiences and comments when you make the curry and enjoy it.
