If you love Rajma, there’s nothing better than the Munsiyari variety – named after the region it is grown in. These beans are harvested by a women’s farmer self help groups and brought to you for a sumptuously fresh experience.
Uttarakhand is home to more than two hundred varieties of Rajma, grown extensively across the state as a cash crop by marginal farmers. Free from any chemical or pesticide, Munsiyari Rajma derives its name from Munsiyari - Located at an altitude of 7,200 ft, Situated at the entrance of Johar valley.
Rich in vitamins and other minerals, Munsiyari Rajma is a good source of protein & carbohydrates. Due to its unique and subtle taste, high fiber content and color, this Rajma is favorite of all ages.

The Organic Purple Rajma from Munsiyari that I got from Pahari Life is easily "the best" Rajma that we (me & my family) have had till date. You know that Rajma is different when you soak the seeds overnight and are pleasantly surprised next day by way the seeds assimilate water and grow overnight. After that the cooking is also a pleasant affair - yes you can cook this without 50 whistles in the pressure cooker - in fact you can cook this without a pressure cooker (rarity for a Rajma). And the end product that you get is finger-licking mushy soft Rajma with a potential to make you reminisce your Childhood Rajma gastronomics. Phenomenal Job Team Pahari Life - Keep At It! Love all that I have got from you till now - looking to explore more. :)
