red kidney bean salad rajma corn

Red Kidney Beans/ Rajma salad is my second salad recipe in a row for this week, my first was basic Couscous Salad and hopefully i will have another salad recipe on saturday. Few salads feels you full if taken as  a small meal, as these have good fibers in it. You need no worry about calories but need to make sure that dressing you top it up should not hold much calories. 
Opsy! I am on edge of healthy weight on BMI chart and i don't want to be i have started to take few salads as meal in a week, along with some walk. I just want to burn those extra calories which i have put on during holidays and parties. 
Salads are such easy recipes where you can add you favourite veggies or nuts and dress it up with your favourite hard and fast rule to make it.Like my   Couscous Salad was not spicy to my tastebuds so i have added sambar(indian tangy curry) to it and enjoyed it. So make  sure you enjoy healthy food by not spoiling your tastebuds. Lets check the ingredients and tips to make this simple bean salad.
