Lima Beans and Dill Sabzi

We were lucky enough to get fresh lima beans in Bangalore.It goes well with both rice and roti (Indian flat bread). I added some lima beans to Dill for some crunchness to the sabzis. Coming to this particular recipe, the secret ingredient  is definitely the dill leaves which has a very unique flavor. Adding garlic and use of mustard oil raises the spiciness level. You can add chilies as per your taste and enjoy this winter with a lovely dish.
