Red kidney beans must be cooked properly. If they are not cooked for long enough, then the lectins within will not break down, and you will get an upset stomach. They must be boiled for at least 20 minutes (though in any case, they taste best when cooked for around 45 minutes). The cooking time of red kidney beans will decrease if you soak the beans beforehand, but regardless of this, they must be boiled for at least 20 minutes and not eaten raw!

The rajma gravy has a gorgeous red colour and is thick and creamy. It is a great combination of health and taste. As the Rajma beans take time to cook, they are soaked overnight.
