Kidney bean or rajma is a must-have legume that is widely used in various traditional dishes in India and abroad. It takes its name from appearance and resemblance to colour of kidneys.
These nourishing legumes are procured from the herbaceous plant, scientifically termed Phaseolus vulgaris. Although native to Mexico and Central America, different varieties of these beans are extensively cultivated across the world, including in India. While the customary North Indian rajma curry recipe is prepared from the red coloured beans, these pods are also present in white, cream, black, purple and spotted variants.
