I can go NEWS(North, East, West, South) and beat a drum, and scream out loud, saying this is YUM YUM YUM! Seriously! I mean every word here. I made this for lunch yesterday since it was my BF's birthday(he's not here, but, my folks caught me to cook a recipe by you coz we love your recipes), and, I ended up serving this and having this for lunch and for dinner. Mom, dad and me loved it, and it's a fantastic recipe. I served this with bread(for myself), rotis(for mom and dad)and I had some with rice too topped with a dollop of chilled yogurt!! Absolutely rajma heaven and you know, I LOVE RAJMA, and so does my BF! So, you can be sure I'll be cooking this alot after I get married:) Had you to eat the rajma our cook makes, GOD BLESS YOU! You would love it allright, if you love oily food(your recipes tell me you dont and I'm so glad you post at Zaar) but, your fingers would be dripping with oil. Thank GOD you posted this, Anu, you know, I love you from the bottom of my soul for this. This will be a regular on our table if and when I'm cooking. Oh, and our cook has suddenly decided I'm not such a dummy at cooking as he thought I was. YAY! :-) THANK U, Anu! It's all because of U!

really good. i loved this recipe the only trouble i had was i think i didn't steam the beans long enough, they were a little dry. next time i might try using canned beans to cut down on the cooking time. all in all a great recipe. thanks

One of the best beans I have ever had! P.S. For the crazy spicy people using habaneros instead of jalapeños its loads more spicy!

I never post recipe reviews-ever! Except for this dish, which is hands down my new favorite. It went together quickly, tasted so good I practically licked the pan. My daughter and I were fighting over who would get the leftovers for lunch. Only thing I might do differently is add a little less water next time-2 cups instead of three. Honestly, you all have got to try this!!! Thank you Anu for the recipe.

Although I didn't have mango powder, green chili pepper or cumin and coriander seeds, I did used cumin and coriander powder. And since I don't love hot peppers as he did, I only used three. It turned out TERRIFIC! Husband Jeff loved it and wants it added to my list of "serve often' meals at home.

Fantastic! Love how all the flavors come together. I added a couple of tomatoes since we love some tang in our food. Other than that, I didn't change a thing.

Very good. I hope I didn't change it too much by adding a few fresh tomatoes? But it was really good.

This was really good! I didn't miss the meat at all! I didn't have mango powder... in fact, I don't know where to find that, but I'm sure that would have really added to it.
