If the word re-fried gives you a scare, worry not, this famous Mexican dish is not refried at all! ‘Re’ in Mexican simply means ‘very’ or ‘thoroughly’, so this dish is simply a sumptuous preparation of cooked beans Saute thoroughly with onions and tongue-tickling spice powders. Myriad ingredients added when cooking the rajma, such as tomatoes, green chillies and garlic give it a saucy consistency and a finger-licking flavour as well. Refried Beans can be refrigerated once done, and enjoyed with any meal, from breakfast and dinner, to a quick snack anytime you feel hungry, just as they do in Mexico. Serve with Taco Shells or just wrap in Flour Tortillas with a salad and Salsa .
