Rajma masala

Kidney beans been cooked and tossed in a rich blend of onion ,tomato along with the spices. Rajma masala is a very healthy and traditional recipe of north India.  I had this once in our friends' home and it tasted very well and my kid too liked it so much. Badshah rajwadi masala or MDH garam masala is more preferable for this recipe. And the end product should not be watery too. And the aroma fills the entire house making everyone crave for it.
