Lima Beans with Mutton

lima-beans

When I go shopping I revert into the old hunter gatherer state of mind and get very excited as soon as I find something interesting. Spotted a couple of packets of freshly peeled Lima beans in a supermarket. There was no price printed on them and so I took 2 out of the 3 bags kept there. The girl at the billing counter read the bar code and said its five rupees for a packet. I asked to re-confirm because I was honestly shocked at the low price. lima-beans-4

Got them home and decided to make them into lunch for the next day.

Washed them by soaking in water for a couple of minutes.

Meanwhile sauteed onions till they got soft and mellow. Added mutton after some ginger garlic paste. Seasoned with chilly powder, turmeric and coriander powder. Added tomato puree and salt. Then pressure cooked for a whistle on high and simmered for 10 mins.

Once pressure had dissipated opened the cooker and added the beans. Once more whistle and the dish is ready.
