Rajma is one of the most loved dishes of North India. In this recipe, the kidney beans and soya chunks combine together to give a delicious gravy. Red kidney beans contain folate, magnesium, iron and manganese among other nutrients. Folate has been shown to lower the homocysteine levels in the body, high levels of which can increase the risk of developing heart disease. The magnesium in kidney beans helps to improve the blood, oxygen and nutrient flow in the body and thus prevent the hardening of the arteries. Iron is beneficial to give energy to your body. Both rajma and soya chunks are rich in fibre which can help regulate your digestive system. You can also try this healthy Punjabi rajma recipe.
