Organic Rajma - Long White Harshil
Organic Rajma - Long White Harshil
*** This 2023 harvest, we are running a campaign to support creation of a seed bank for Rajma in our local community. For every 1 KG of rajma purchased 25% more seed is donated to a seed bank to be used by our farmers from 2024. The seed bank has been setup and is being managed by our non-profit partner Kalap Trust, read more here. After 2 consecutive years of crop loss due to unpredictable monsoon, we feel it is imperative that rajma seeds are saved and its cultivation expanded to compensate for losses due to climate change and secure the biodiversity of pahadi rajma varieties. ***
Rajma Cost Breakup - Rs 363 per KG for rajma + Rs. 60 (250 GMS) donated for seed bank
Long White Harshil Rajma is considered the tastiest by the local community. It is highly prized for being easy to cook, forming a very yummy gravy. It is usually cooked with some red rajma variety so that the gravy gets color.
- Soak rajma for at least 6 hours in cold water (use RO purified water if tap water is hard)
- Drain the water
- Pressure cook with fresh water for 8-9 whistles (again use RO purified water if tap water is hard)
Organic rajma in the upper Tons Valley, Uttarakhand:
Rajma is one of the staple food crops in our valley. Almost all farmers sow rajma as it is the main source of vegetable protein in our local cuisine. Farmers who have rajma which is surplus to their annual food and seed purpose, sell to earn money. We are supporting these hard working farmers by finding a fair market for their rajma. We pay a fair price that compensates them for growing rajma in remote fields which don't even have access to a road. The harvest has to be brought on mules to the nearest road and the transported to our processing center.
Our rajma is completely organic, grown using only natural compost and cow manure. No inorganic fertilizer or chemical pesticides are used. We are in the process of helping these farmers getting their produce certified organic very soon.
