Lima Beans Sundal – Super Lazy!

Lima Beans Sundal – Super Lazy!

NC - Cooking240It really doesn’t get much lazier than this! The result of my laziness? Super-easy ‘Lima Beans Sundal’, in minutes. And, I get bragging rights on this one, you see! Well…indeed, I made this from scratch, alright! A bag of frozen lima beans was lying around for several weeks. So, I figured…before it starts to germinate, grow roots and shoots, I should probably use it!!  Am sure there are too many discomforts in life, but giving up cooking on even dull-dull days…is quite impossible for people like me. :) So, there you go…’Quick-Fix Sundal’ it is. :)


  • 1 bag frozen lima beans
  • 1 inch ginger, grated
  • 1 chili pepper, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • pinch of turmeric (optional)
  • 1 tsp urad dal
  • 1/4 asafoetida
  • 1/4 cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • few curry leaves
  • 2 tsp olive oil


In a wide wok, heat oil and throw in the tempering spices, wait till it pop and splutters well. Then add the lima beans plus salt and a pinch of turmeric (if you like). Cover and cook. Add roughly about 1/4 cup of water to cook. Once the moisture is gone, its done…remove from heat and serve up warm as an evening snack.
