I love lima beans. Of course, I call them patani, in the local language. I discovered that these are the same after watching one too many cooking shows when I was younger. And I always wondered why in the American comics or books I read, lima beans were evil 🙂 Or at least that’s what the main character thinks.
At home, patani is usually served in soup, with some noodles, the same with patola (sponge gourd). I ate both, and I still like patani and patola in that kind of preparation. But I’m looking for a different way to eat it. Going for simple this time, I decided to just saute it, the simplest way that I can think of. 🙂
In a pan, I had garlic and onion in a bit of oil, and then I added the patani, along with about 1/2 cup of water, to cook it. I added some powdered seasoning (chicken powder) and covered it. Mom said it would take a while, so I let it cook for 15 minutes. Taste, and then serve.
Yummy. I really love this. I ought to eat this more often. 🙂 It’s vegetable, so it’s probably good for me 😛
