Came out wonderful.I made this for my guests and they loved it.They said it was the best rajma they`d ever had.The only changes I made was to add 2 green chillies while frying onions,mashed about 1/3rd of the rajma and also 1 1/2 tbsp of ketchup before leaving it to simmer.Came out perfect.Thnks for the recipe!
