I don't know if this recipe is actually Indian. I did not write down a title when I copied it from the book. I serve this over fragrant rice. It is my favorite meal and as a child I would not eat Lima beans because they were pasty. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Tasty, easy, healthy. Left out the oil and served over brown rice. I used frozen beans instead of canned. Thanks for posting.
