Lima Beans Curry ( Karwari Style )

Its really been a long long time since I last posted something here. But now I have made a promise
 to myself to be regular in posting . So  today to start with I am posting the recipe of this simple but
 yummy Lima Beans Curry - with  karwari-sambar-masala . I am sure u all will like it.

I usually cook these beans in north indian style with lots of onions n tomatoes along with ginger garlic paste. Yesterday I soaked the lima beans and then realised that I am craving for something authentically karwari, ( As I was back from a vacation and was deprived of home cooked food ) So I decided to try this curry the karwari style. No need to say that the curry tasted amazing and we loved having it with hot rice n potato phodi .  Finally enjoying being back at home.

1 tsp...................mustard seeds
1/4 tsp...............asefoetida (hing)
2 sprigs............curry leaves ( I have not used )

Method :
