Kidney Bean Soup – Lobya Soyutmasi

   Kidney bean is known as Rajma in India and it is commonly used in Azerbaijan. This is a thick soup with lots of bean in it. In Azerbaijan cuisine , the term soyutma  refers to the dish that is boiled in water.

Requirements :

  Dry Kidney Beans ( Rajma ) – 200g

  Tomato  - 2

Garlic – 3 cloves

Salt to taste

Black pepper powder

Coriander leaves


Method :

 Soak the beans overnight.

Discard the water and  wash well.

Add the bean  to the pan along with 4- 5 cup of water and cook on simmer for about 40 minutes or until the beans are tender.

 Blanch the tomatoes and peel off the skin and grind.

Mash the cooked beans partially , I used the wooden masher . Don’t use the blender to mash.

Add in the crushed garlic , tomato puree , salt and pepper  and bring back to boil.

The soup must be in a thick consistency.

Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and serve.


Note :

Original recipe uses one tablespoon vinegar , I used tomato instead of vinegar.
