Butter Rajma Rice

Recently just after the Pulwama attack we went on a vacation to Kashmir. On the first day our driver took us to Krishna Dhaba in Srinagar and we had this butter rajma rice. It was sooo yummy that I tried to remake it in my kitchen. It came out really well and my husband really liked it. Do try this one pot meal I’m sure you will love it too.
