help identifying pink bean

We were given some beans I assumed were favas. But in opening the pods I was surprised to find hot pink beans. I googled "pink beans" but those seem to be a different sort. The ones I received look a bit like kidney beans, though maybe a bit larger and squatter--and they're hot pink. I've added a photo. Any ideas?

Thanks, Panfusine. I think you're right, and I'm going to cook them assuming they're Rajma. What did we do before the Interwebs?!

Another possibility, depending on where you live, pinquitos which means "little pinks". Very popular on the California Central Coast, but usually we find them dried rather than fresh.
