Rajma Chawal is one of the most famous rice preparations in North India, specially the Delhi region. It is a convenient option to carry in lunch boxes too, as it is satiating and flavour-packed.

Here is a healthy version of this North Indian rice delicacy made using brown rice and with lower salt content, to make it suitable for those with high blood pressure. This Rajma Brown Rice is also quite easy to make.

Cook the brown rice and keep it aside. Pressure cook the rajma with the masalas, and add the brown rice to it. Voila, a sumptuous and tasty meal is ready to relish.
