Rajma Masala (Red Kidney Beans)

Nutritional Value: Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber.In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia.

2 onions (finely chopped)

3-4 pods of garlic(minced)

2 tomatoes (pureed)

2 tsp of chilli powder
