Quarantine Invention : Punjabi Pasta / Rajma Pasta Recipe

Helloooo ! My healthy community. Hope you all are doing well while this quarantine. Being lock down at home so many people discovered artist in themselves, people find a chef,singer,painter,etc in themselves.What’s your status this lock down period? I love cooking so I am on the track of trying new recipes during lock down period. And here is the interesting recipe which I came up with is Punjabi Pasta/ Rajma Pasta Recipe.

Thinking all time about being healthy my thoughts always attract some good nutritious food to be cooked in my kitchen. Rajma(Kidney Beans) is a good source of Protein, Iron,Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C & Vitamin B6. The very popular Combination of Rajma is with Rice. But I thought Pasta with Rajma will also be the good combination and yes it is.

To make the recipe healthy choose whole wheat pasta or Chickpea pasta. I have used boiled left over semolina pasta. Using left over ingredients to make a new recipe really makes you think so much that how the actual dish will taste. I would suggest to do trial and error, you will definitely discover something amazing and unique.
