One can also consider it some sort of comfort food. Rajma is often a go-to dish when you can’t decide what to cook for the guests.
Usually, you need to soak Rajma overnight and it is a very crucial step in the process. Because rajma needs to melt in your mouth without resistance while biting, soaking is preferable.
But if you cannot do that then you can use canned rajma that is available in the market so as to save time. Or you can pressure cook it until the beans turn soft.
