Asha: thanks and sure good for a quick lunch and that's what we did today.

Nobody would have heard of Rajma Chutney, if fact, I wanted to try Indosungod's red kidney beans curry, But today was Poornima and since I do not have onion and garlic this day, I could not try her recipe and ended up creating my own out of the already soaked rajma.
