Let’s Create Some Fusion, Make Rajma Masala Pops

Many Indians, especially Punjabis, regularly eat rajma with rice as a form of comfort food. Anytime of the day, a nourishing dinner can be made using rajma, which has a soft and chewy texture, tomato onion masala that is spiced with mild herbs, and steaming rice. However, did you know that Rajma originated in South America and was imported by Indian traders from Peru some hundred years ago? Since then, it has become a national favourite among Indians. 

Rajma is available all year long and is often made from dry beans that have been soaked overnight before being pressure cooked or fried to make them mushy. Rajma has a wide range of health advantages that should persuade us all to include it in our diets. You can enjoy this recipe for rajma masala pop.

Health Benefits

Rajma beans are a protein powerhouse and a great alternative to red meat. In actuality, steaming hot rajma chawal contains a perfect ratio of protein comparable to that found in dairy or meat, but without the additional calories and saturated fat. 15 grams of protein are included in one cup of kidney beans. 

Minerals like copper, iron, manganese, phosphorus, molybdenum, and vitamins B1 and folate are all abundant in kidney beans. These healthy beans are an excellent addition to a diabetic diet due to their low glycemic index (GI), naturally high dietary fibre content, and little sugar level. 

Kidney beans promote a smooth digestive process and a healthy metabolism since they are rich in B vitamins, starchy carbs, and enough roughage. These legumes also include large amounts of antioxidants called isoflavones and flavonoids, which help to regulate blood sugar, prevent unexpected increases in blood pressure, and maintain cardiac muscle function and heart health. 

Thus, the abundance of nutrients in kidney beans offers a variety of therapeutic health advantages, such as controlling blood sugar, reducing cholesterol, and enhancing immunity. Let’s produce rajma pops and include the health advantages of rajma.
