So I always look for one pot meal which is filled with grains, vegetables and pulses, which makes life much more easier. This is one such meal which can be made in minutes. Rajma can be replaced with any other pulses or mix of vegetables too. Well, there isn't much to talk about anything else today, so let's move on to the recipe now.
