Urban Granny Easy Cook Rajma – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
We received a sturdy beige and mustard-colored carton. Inside the carton, there was an alumnium pouch that was sealed. The carton also had an instruction card.
It held 375 grams of rajma and was priced at Rs 125/-. The shelf life is 1 year.
Rajma (chitra), water, common salt, natural flavoring condiments (clove, cinnamon, black cardamom, star anise).
This contains no added colors or preservatives.
How we made our Rajma Curry
We followed the instructions provided on the card. For this, we prepared our regular gravy with some onions, tomatoes, ginger-garlic paste, ghee, and cumin.
Then we added the pre-boiled rajma with some water and let this simmer for around five minutes.
This was served hot with rice.
Taste + Texture
The chitra rajma beans were cooked to perfection. It was a mix of whole and mashed beans. The whole ones had a nice bite and the mashed beans added a thickness to the gravy. The type of rajma used by Urban Granny was commendable. Large and squishy, these had a desirable texture.
In terms of taste, the beans were fresh. There was no stale or rancid flavor/aroma. They took on the flavors quite well too.
Full marks on convenience! The entire dish took around 20 minutes to come together. Looking at the final quantity, this is good enough for nuclear families or three whole servings. Pocket-friendly and easy to make, Mishry gives Urban Granny Easy Cook Rajma a thumbs up.
- Priced appropriately
- Ideal for three servings
- Good quality overall
