Baghali (Lima Bean) Polo

Baghali (Lima Bean) Polo is a colorful and delicious dish made with basmati rice, lima beans and dill weed. It can be served with lamb shank or baked chicken.

  • One 12 oz. bag frozen lima beans, thawed (or one can, drained)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed (dry or fresh)
  • 5 cups cooked basamati rice
  • 1 teaspoon saffron water

In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter with lima beans. Cook, stiring gently, until lima beans are heated through. Combine lima bean mixture, dill weed and basmati rice.  Mix lightly to avoid breaking the rice and mashing the lima beans.  When thoroughly combined, transfer to serving dish.  Top with saffron water.
