No Oil Rajma Recipe : Step 1

The recipe of No Oil Rajma is not much different from the preparation of regular rajma curry recipe. That’s why the beginning of the recipe is exactly the same as we usually do to make Rajma. First of all, Rajma should be washed well and soaked for 8 to 10 hours. Soaking Rajma and other pulses and beans in water for 8 to 10 hours is very important. Boiling pulses and beans directly in the pressure cooker for a long time is not a healthy shortcut at all.
