  1. Have never come across Rajma masala Powder ever, this sound different as well as very helpful as it can also serve as multipurpose spice powder. Will try making this spice powder and use it in my recipes also.

  2. Very handy home made masala for rajma. Fresh masalas definitely make the dish so aromatic.
