Soak the rajma overnight or for 4-5 hours. Later, boil it with the onion, 1 and a half cup water and 1 teaspoon salt. Once cooked, allow to dry over low flame.
Make a smooth paste by blending 2 tomatoes, garlic and soaked red chillies together. Keep ready.
In a pan or wok, heat oil and add the prepared paste. Stir continuously till it begins to leave the oil from the sides.
Next, add the cooked beans mixture and stir for another 5 minutes.
Add the capsicum, corn, spring onions and chilli flakes. Add the cooked rice and combine well.
Taste to adjust salt. Garnish with cheese and serve hot.
