Tomatillo Stir-Fry with Lima beans.

Tomatillos look like raw green Tomatoes. It is popularly used in Mexican cuisine for making salsa and sauces.They are covered with thin paper like skin and has sweet and sour taste. I made this simple Tomatillo stir-fry by adding some lima beans.This is quick and yummy recipe for routine cooking.

Ingredients :-
  • 5-6 Tomatillos cut in 1/2 inch pieces. (2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup frozen lima beans.
  • 1 medium size onion - finely chopped.
  • 1 inch piece of ginger - finely crushed.
  • 2-3 Garlic cloves - finely crushed.
  • 2-3 Green chilies - finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro - finely chopped
  • 1/2 T.spoon turmeric.
  • 1 Tb.spoon oil.
Method Of Cooking :-
  1. Heat 1 tb.spoon oil in open pan/skillet. Add chopped onion and stir-fry till they turn soft and translucent.
  2. Add crushed garlic,ginger ,chopped chilies and turmeric powder - saute for a minute.
  3. Add Tomatillos , Lima beans - Mix all well , add some salt and let it cook uncovered for 5-6 minutes on medium heat. Tomatillos have very high water content so you will notice increased liquid while cooking. Increase heat and stir-fry little more till liquid evaporates.
  4. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with rice/roti.
