Rajma Capsicum - Kidney Beans and Green Peppers

I love "RAJMA".., there are 3 reasons for it.., One., I love all kind of legumes.., and Amma made it a compulsion for us to have any one kind of Legume everyday.. Not that it was forced upon us.., "We" as in my Bro and me were rather fond of these colorful and nutritive (which amma described them) beans in different shapes and sizes.. :D Reason number two for liking Rajma.., is that my husband also lovessss Rajma ( one, among the many similar tastes which we both share).., and thirdly I love RAJMA cause the name itself suggest Two of my most favorite people in the World.. Raj., my Hubby and My Ma.. :D and I keep trying out different types of Rajma at home.., Its a wonder that I'm posting a recipe about RAJMA so late into my blog.., anyways.., Here is the recipe.., Hope you like reading it as much I like cooking it.. (Clich├ęd, but sounds good nevertheless) :D :D :D
