Shahi Methi Rajma / Red Kidney Beans Stir fry With Nuts , Fenugreek & Yougurt Sauce

Shahi methi rajma tastes best with fresh methi or fenugreek leaves but can also be prepared with kasoori or dried methi( I used kasoori methi in this recipe).The cooked beans blend perfectly with the methi flavor and makes for a lovely side dish with chapatis or rice.
