Rajma Chawal (Rajma Curry Rice)

I wanted something quick for the kids lunch also something that will give them energy to last longer in the school. They prefer to pack only one dish (if they are packing for lunch) so need to make sure I pack something which provides most of their protein and vitamin needs. Chawals are good option for that
