Creamy Rajma Aloo Masala

Creamy Rajma Aloo Masala with Roti

Creamy Rajma Aloo Masala is simple and quick side dish you can make for Chapathis. With regular Indian spices, you can make this quick.

Continuing in my theme of showcasing everyday meals for Lunch or Dinner, for the final day I have a creamy Rajma Masala that I made with small Rajma Variety along with Potatoes.

I served this rajma aloo masala along with Raitha to make a complete meal and it was so filling and satisfactory. All you got to plan is to soak the Rajma ahead and your quick side dish is ready.

This Rajma Aloo Masala was our dinner when I stayed with my parents and we enjoyed this quick and simple meal. Though we were missing the kids, we spent time reminiscing about our childhood. I decided going forward, I should plan for such time with my parents too. Kids get their vacation and I get my time too.

I hope you enjoyed reading about our simple meals.
