Sem Aloo Ki Subzi (broad Beans And Potato Stir Fry)

Lima beans or Sem aloo ke sabzi is a simple and delectable side dish. Like other green beans these are rich in fiber and other nutrients. I just love to have his recipe. The young tender beans taste the best. As Lima beans are firm in texture hence requires proper cooking time, to overcome this step, you can cook it in pressure cooker also. This Sem Aloo ki Subzi can be paired up with hot rice or dal.
