Rajma Chawal - Beans and Rice

This is a something I made when Hans was not home last week. The time when Niv posted in her place A Dish a Day I have been wanting to make them, and as I was home alone I thought I will make them so I don't need to cook for two days :--)
I followed her recipie fully just that I used kidney beans cooked by muself than the tin.
It is really so good and so comforting. And the whole dish looks so good in your plate :-)

Have you ever felt like you are opening up a box from Ali baba and Forthy thieves or  box from Aladdins cave, well that is how I felt when I Hans came home very late almost midnight last sunday from Delhi.
His flight was two hours delayed in Delhi, so we were not sure if he would be able to catch his connecting flight from Frankfurt , and any way with all the delay's he could got the connecting flight to Brussels .
So he came home refreshed him self and I had made sandwiches and opend up a bottle of wine, so before all that he ipend up and took out the goodies he bought and then what Deeba had send with him.
To be honest I didn't know what to open up and admire, each packet I opend up it was like wow i love this and then I opend up another, i was like ok I change my mind I love this more :-) all to all it was indeed like opening up a treasure box with full of goodies.
