Lima Beans Biryani

Lima Beans Biryani is easy to make one pot meal that’s healthy and filling as well with lima beans, mixed vegetables included in it.

When I was deciding on letter L, I thought of Lobia, Lilva and couldn’t go any further. Suddenly something struck me that I could use Lima Beans as well. These beans are always so confusing. We call something something, when it is actually something else!

That’s exactly what happened. I soaked Double Beans, after reading about beans where it was written that Double Beans are also called as Lima Beans. I went ahead cooked and enjoyed that meal as well when I again checked and landed in confusion.

A quick discussion with my BM buddies told me that I could be wrong. However, it was too late, I was fixed on it and the happiness that comes from striking off one letter is nothing you can understand until you undergo through it.

I love maintaining a spreadsheet, document with lists and recipes all sorted and ready. So as soon as I cook and click, I will be in a hurry to strike out the dish in my list. That makes me soo happy!

Since this was already done, I was not ready to add it back. I decided no matter which one I used, I was going to call this Lima Beans!

Lima Beans Biryani is my choice for L in the AtoZ Biryani/Pulao/Khichdi Festival that’s happening for the April Mega Marathon, where I have opted to make 26 Rice dishes. If you are interested to know what I am doing for L in C4AS, go ahead check it out!Lima Beans Biryani

  1. I have seen only light greenish colored lima beans so far. The beans add a protein punch to the vegetable biryani and makes it wholesome. I need to check that shahi masala.

  2. Hahaha! Even I have no idea what lima beans is, so will take your word. I can definitely understand the happiness when we strike off one recipe from the list. Whatever the beans may be, the rice look so delicious..

  3. We find green and one white ones here but I totally get about the name confusion. When I made lima beans pirattal I had the same issues. Nothing can beat the joy of striking off the recipe for an alphabet. 🙂 This is indeed a quick one pot meal. Good one Valli.
