Butter beans or lima beans are easily available here in foz...These are rich in taste and can cook curries or gravies which matches perfectly with flat breads like rotis or pulkas. one pot meals are easy to cook and filling too.This butter beans pulao is very easy to make and healthy too because of adding cilantro, mint leaves.
You can serve this simple pulao with raita or curd and it does`n t needed any gravy or curry..Here I used dried beans so,pressure cooking is must before going to process.If you are using fresh beans can cook directly.grinding paste of mint and cilantro is an important step in the recipe which gives a good flavor and reduces the cooking time.I served thsi with simple carrot raita but you can serve with any of your choice.
