Red Kidney Beans (or Rajma) are not only a staple in Indian cuisine but are also widely used in Mexican and Brazilian cooking. Other than their usage in gravies and curries they are a great addition to salads as well. Rajma is known to contain both soluble and insoluble dietary fibre which helps lower cholesterol, aid digestion and regulate blood sugar. It is known as a protein powerhouse and provides the body with ample amounts of protein. It also contains essential vitamins and minerals like B1, calcium, potassium, manganese and is full of antioxidants.
