Pressure cooker rajma

This iconic North Indian bean stew is the ultimate comfort food. Like a classic chili, the beans are coated with a rich, heavily spiced, tomato-ey sauce. And, it is practically made for the electric pressure cooker.

Sourcing notes

The state of Zacatecas, northwest of Mexico City, has a rich history of thriving nomadic tribes as old as the Aztecs, and is the original site for some of the world’s first beans. Today, thousands of experienced small-scale farmers are Mexico’s leading producers of guavas, chiles, nopales, and, of course, beans– benefiting from the sunny, semi-arid climate and rich, red soils. We partnered with Armando Klein of Darmstadt Organics, who helped organize the farms in his community into a cooperative– so that they can benefit from shared resources and collectively innovate, like achieving organic certification and promoting crops that are important symbols of regional identity.

Outstanding!

I love these petite beans, they cook up such a rich hearty broth and are the perfect bean for all my rice & beans cravings.

Absolutely Delicious!

These beans are so much better than any store bought variety that I’ve tried. They are fresh, the texture is wonderful and not mushy. Must try!

The perfect general purpose red bean

I absolutely love Sangre de Toro beans! Great flavor, small (but substantial), cook up quickly in a stovetop pressure cooker (35 minutes high pressure, 15 minute natural release), and most importantly, they come from a fabulous company!

Most recently, I used these beans as a supplement to my favorite Carne Adovada recipe. Really took it to a higher plane. Finished with chopped onion, cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and a dollop of sour cream...heaven.

Nice earthy beans that meet all your red bean needs

I'm constantly coming across recipes that use kidney beans (Indian, South American, etc) that I want to make, but I've never been too impressed with red kidney beans. Now I've found a lovely, earthy bean that can replace them. Thanks Primary Beans!
