Double Beans or Lima Beans are high in protein, iron, dietary fiber and other nutrients. They are great for vegetarians and vegans looking for low fat, protein rich food. You can prepare a variety of dishes using double beans like sambar, double beans pulao, kurma, curry, sundal etc.Today we will learn how to make Double Beans curry following this easy recipe.
Rinse and soak double beans overnight or for 5-6 hours if using dried ones and then pressure cook until soft. If using fresh beans just pressure cook (no soaking required) with a little salt and water until soft. If using canned beans, drain, rinse well and use it.
Chop onion, green chillies and tomatoes finely.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add cumin seeds, finely chopped green chillies and curry leaves.
When cumin seeds sizzle, add finely chopped onions, ginger, garlic and saute until onions turn transparent.
Add chopped tomatoes, all the spice powder, salt needed and cook until tomatoes become mushy.
Then add cooked double beans, 2 tbsp of water and cook simmered until everything gets blended well. This is a dry curry/sabzi.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with rice or chapati.
