My experiments with Slow cooker series - Rajma

As you may know, any kind of lentils cook very well in slow cooker. Today's post is Rajma which came out nice and creamy. I added the Rajma directly (dry beans), No soaking overnight. Rajma has good amount of Iron and is very healthy. 
Ingredients :
3/4 Cup Rajma (Kidney beans)
1 Medium onion
1 Tomato
1 1/2 Tbsp Oil
1 Inch Ginger
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Tsp Whoe Jeera
1 Tsp Garam masala
4 Small Green chillies
1/4 Tsp Turmeric
Salt to taste
5 cups water
Cut onion , tomato into small pieces.Slice ginger into juliens and chop garlic.
Take a microwave bowl add oil, whole jeera, Onion, Garlic, Garam masala and cook for 2 minutes.
In the slow cooker add Rajma,Ginger,Turmeric,Green Chillies tomato, water ,salt and Tadka. Stir well and cook on low for 7 -8 Hours on high. It will not harm even if you leave it for another hour or so. 
Alternately if you are at home, you can add tadka later after 5 hrs of cooking process instead of at starting.
Serve hot with roti.
