LIMA BEANS GRAVY/SIDE DISHES FOR ROTIS N CHAPATHIS



This is the Second Recipe I tried with LIMA BEANS. I never bought  lima beans until i saw in  the super market  MUFFATO ....I really like to try new recipes specially with grains or seeds like PEAS,CHICK PEAS,KIDNEY BEANS,COW PEAS etc....  ......I tried RICE PULAV with half of the beans and remaining  beans I used in this GRAVY..
This is a gravy which you can make within 30 minutes and it`s completely healthy........The ingredients which I used Grinding part  are completely choice......It tastes best with ROTIS.....CHAPATHIS..  ....
