This is very simple one pot recipe I make it in slow cooker. If I need it at lunch time put all the ingredients in the slow cooker at night and set the timer for 5am, by the time you are done with all other stuff your Raajma curry is ready. This dish is very popular in Northern India.
It goes very well with rice.
