I tried out this recipe with a lot of eagerness but was utterly disapointed.It was so bad and all those tomatoes made it taste like a poor cousin of rasam.
Wonder all the praises are written by the author herself..ooof!

i dont like rajama. but for my guests i tried this recipe only very recently and came out very well. i added ginger garlic paste along with onions and also milk .And before removing from fire a dash of garam masala powder. the flavour enhanced the taste of the dish. thank you very much for the recipe.

Nice one this…..altho I made slight alterations, added grated ginger and garlic to the onions and during the last few mnts of cooking, also added half a cup of milk. Adding milk really does enhance the flavor and is popular with rajma curries. Try it out folks ! Thnx for this recipe !

This is a lovely recipe by someone who obviously take pride in her culinary excellence.
Kudos to the detail and the comments that personlize such input.
I actually prefer fresh beans and delight in the aroma that good spice combinations bring out.
Well done, m`lady. Hats off to you. Please put in more such recipes for people like me who`ve nearly lost touch with the holy land of Bhaaratha (I hate the word India!! too british for my taste.)
