Rajma or kidney beans is very healthy and one of my favorite legumes. Rajma Masala screams comfort to me and I make very often since it’s our favorite. This is my first time making rajma in my Instant Pot and it turned out so well. We usually enjoy it over roti or hot steamed rice or quinoa. Here’s how I made it. If you’re scouting for Instant Pot recipes, here’s few.
