This Recipe is :

High Carb Vegan Vegan




  • 6 whole wheat bread slices
  • 1/2 cup rajma/red kidney beans, soaked overnight in enough water
  • 1/4 cup boiled potato cubes
  • 1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • A pinch of asofoetida/hing
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds


  1. Pressure cook the kidney beans with enough water for 10 whistles over low-medium flame. Remove from the heat and allow the pressure to settle down. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a pan or kadai and temper the mustard seeds. Add chopped onions and sauté a while.
  2. Add chopped tomatoes and mash the pulp. Add ginger-garlic paste and stir well. Add the cooked kidney beans with the water. Give a stir. Add potato cubes, turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala, asofoetida, and salt to taste. Mix well everything and add 1/2 cup water. Cook it, covered on low flame for 10 minutes, or until you get dry masala.
  3. To prepare grilled sandwich, take a bread slice. Spread 1 or 2 tablespoons of kidney bean masala mixture. Cover this with another bread slice. Place it in a sandwich maker, grill it, or just fry it on a skillet.
  4. Cut into slices and serve.
