The fresh methi leaves along with the lima beans when cooked with aromatic basmati rice resulted in this wonderful combo! We had it with some cucumber raita and chips!

Frozen baby lima beans - 1 cup
Fresh methi leaves(fenugreek leaves) - 1 cup packed
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Garam masala - 1 teaspoon
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon

Wash and soak the basmati rice for 20 to 30 minutes.
In a pressure cooker, add the oil or ghee and fry the onions until translucent. Add the ginger garlic paste and green chilies and fry for a minute. Then add the tomato and salt. Once it turns mushy. add the frozen lima beans and chopped fresh methi leaves and give it a stir. Add the garam masala and the turmeric powder and saute for about two minues.
