Method 

Cook the rajma in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles with a pinch of salt,it should not be mushy.Meanwhile grind the ingredients given to grind to a fine and smooth paste.Soak the basmathi rice in water for 20 minutes.

Start by heating the pressure pan with oil and saute the onion till translucent then add the ground paste.Saute it till the raw smell disappears.

Now add the yogurt/curd,chopped mint and coriander leaves,saute it for a minute.Then add the cooked rajma and mix it well.

At this stage add the chopped tomato,salt and cook it mushy.Add the rice and fry it for a minute.


Add the hot water.Let it boil,close the pan and cook it for one whistle in a medium flame.Then keep it in a low flame for 5 minutes.Remove the lid,once the pressure subsides and fluff it with a fork.

Rajma biriyani is ready.Serve it with raita.


Enjoy...................................................


  • Do not cook the rajma for a long time otherwise it will turn mushy.
  • Instead of cooking it in a pressure cooker,it can be cooked in an open pot also.
