Lima Beans and Potato curry

aby Lima beans is also called as Butter beans or Double beans.They are available either as frozen or as dry beans.Baby lima beans and potato makes a nice pair and is a very tasty curry.I usually have it frozen in my freezer as I use it for most of my dishes, it cooks fast too.

2cups Baby Lima Beans(frozen)
1cup Potato(skin peeled & cut into cubes)
1chopped Onion
1chopped Tomato
1tsp Ginger+Garlic paste
1tsp Red chilli powder
1tsp Garam Masala
1tsp Oil
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Turmeric Powder
a pinch of Asafoetida/Hing
1tsp Sesame seeds, dry coconut and Peanuts powder(blend it in a blender)


In a pan put a tsp of oil and add mustard seeds when it is splutters add onions and fry till it turns brown.Then add giner-garlic paste,turmeric powder, asafoetida,red chilli powder and garam masala and fry for few minutes and then add tomatoes,salt to taste,Potatoes and baby lima beans.Add a cup of water and cover it with a lid and let it boil for 10 mins on medium flame.Finally add sesame seeds, dry coconut and Peanut powder to it and mix well.Garnish with fresh chopped coriander leaves and serve it with Chapthis'/roti's.


  1. Yummy. Is it sesame seed, coconut and peanut powder grind together or separately

  2. Looks good! I make the same curry without the sesame, coconut and peanut....will try this method...:). Does it make a difference if I use fresh coconut (frozen) instead of dry?


Its so nice of you to take time and leave a note for me, i appreciate it.I hope u have a wonderful day!
