Rajma (Red Kidney Beans) & Mixed Veggies Salad

Not even a day i prepared rajma cutlets with sweet potatoes... earlier i have soaked half a packet of dry rajma beans and i pressure cooked the complete soaked rajma where i used only a cup of this pressure cooked rajma for making out patties, somehow i managed to prepare some dishes with the remaining rajma eventhough i had some more leftover cooked red kidney beans in my fridge.. i finished those cooked rajma beans by making out a delicious, easy, healthy and colourful salad with some shredded carrots, steam cooked french beans, tomato chunks, few mozzarella cheese chunks by adding finally those left over cooked rajma beans, i served this salad with a easy and simple yogurt dressing prepared with greek yogurt with pepper and salt..It was such a simple salad, suits incredible as a starter for a lunch with pasta or with some steamed cooked veggies, as a light meal if u really feel hunger even after having ur lunch or for dinner with simple soup, u can also make out sandwich with this refreshing salad with toasted bread slices.. am damn sure that everyone at home will definitely love this colourful chunky salad...


1/2cup Red kidney beans/Rajma (leftover)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped as cubes)
1cup Carrots(shredded)
1/4cup Steamed cooked french beans (chopped)
1/2cup Mozzarella cheese chunks
1cup Greek yogurt
Salt
Pepper powder

Take the leftover cooked rajma, chopped tomatoes,shredded carrots, chopped french beans chunks and mozzarelle cheese chunks , give a stir and keep aside..

Before serving, add enough salt and pepper powder to the greek yogurt, whisk gently and add this dressing to the already prepared salad, toss gently and serve immediately as salad..

Enjoy the colourful salad!

  24. priya can u tell me how long it should be soaked and pressured for how many whistels for rajma to become soft for salad

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Poornima, usually i soak the dry rajma overnite and pressure cook them for 1 whistle or else upto 2whistles, its largely enough to cook the rajma..

    Hope this helps..
