Hi Chris, never heard of this before and had to Google it. 

I quite fancy giving this a go can you tell me what size the kidney bean tins were please?  :)  And whether they were heaped, rounded or level?  :P


Can I also see cheeky chunks of chicken hidden in it too?

425g and i think it read 200g of beans after being drained. When i had them in the colander to wash them they were heaped but rounded and level on top, about the size of a ball, but, no bigger than what you would think.
Yep your eyes did not tell you lies it was chicken, a bit less than a boot full.
just had it on it's own for dinner, very very tasty and low in cals, try it Axe.

Thanks Chris it's going on the list of recipes to try. It's not a million miles from a chili con carne.

No images visible here, but using "Quote" to investigate the BB source shews that they are in a very odd location :

I can see the pics, but as Phil has identified they are hosted on the other forum, which probably only allows photos to be viewed by members of that forum. It's not really the right way to host pics for posting on this forum.

The other site is down for a server move.
I can't see the pics either.

Would love to see the photos, though.

I believe that "Rajma masala" is one of the most awesome curries out there - and pretty healthy, too! Perfect with simple, plain rice, and if cooked properly, just damn tasty! But: Miss a little bit of Garam masala, or just a pinch of black cardamom. Adds another nice earthy, rustic flavour.

Would also love to know, if some of you guys already used some dried, indian kidney beans from, e.g. TRS, and could write something about the taste, in comparison to our european stuff. Heard that in India, there are a few different sorts of kidney beans available, also smaller ones, which are especially flavourful. Ate a ready-to-eat "Dal Makhani" some months ago, and there were sure some kidney beans in it, that were different from the ones you get here. Pretty tasty stuff.

Greetings!

I can't see any trace of images or a link to images. Did he edit out any link?

If so, I could change the thread title to read "rajma curry recipe without photos"

I can see them fine George, all three of them. Maybe you need to empty your browsers cahche perhaps?

But this also remind to give Chris' recipe a go. Chonk, my local ASDA has the TRS kidney beans, i'll see if I can pick some up and let you know.

Edit: read back to NJ's comment George.

Hi

FYI the image issue:

Assuming you have a member account at RCR - log in to RCR so you have a valid session cookie from that site for your browser then view the first post and the images will appear. Guess they don't allow image links from non-authenticated users in their forum.

Cheers

George, if you can see these pix.Can you put them on post 1 please.

Many thanks for that. When I looked at the code behind message #1 here I could see the previous links but they were absolutely invisible to me on the normal page view.

You could perhaps delete the repeat images now?

Got this on the go Chris (late dinner I know) How many does the total recipe feed? I've cut the quantity down as i'm only cooking for me. Taste tested so far and really like it, looking forward to eating it later.

EDIT:

Thanks Chris, very tasty dish, write up at link http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php/topic,11615 (http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php/topic,11615)
