Rajma (Kidney Bean Curry)

Rating: 4.5 stars 58
Rajma is comfort food at its best. I like rajma best with simple jeera (cumin) rice. Of course, some roti would be great too. When I was in college, I ate rajma at least once a week. Cheap, nutritious, and comforting. What is not to like?

Fast Pressure Cooker Ribs

Rating: 4 stars 9
I make these for a fast freezer meal. Boneless ribs and barbeque sauce are done in 20 minutes. Serve how you want. I put them in separate meals and freeze for later.

Instant Pot® Double Bean and Ham Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
No pre-soaking beans required. I know it sounds strange, but my mother-in-law always added a can of pork and beans to her homemade bean soup and, seriously, it adds another layer of flavor.
