Succotash

**********************************************
Many of America's traditional dishes have their roots in Native American foods. Succotash is one of them. Traditionally this dish is made with lima beans, corn and peppers. Here I had to substitute lima beans with french beans. But lima beans tastes better. So try with lima beans and see the difference.



Ingredients
***************
Butter                                3 tbsps.
Red Peppers                      1/4 cup thinly sliced
Corn                                  3 cups
Lima Beans                        2 cups
Salt                                    to taste
Black Pepper Powder          2 tsps.        

Method
**********
  • In a saucepan, heat 2 tbsps. butter. Once butter is heated, add red bell peppers and cook until tender for a min. Add corn and cook for a min. In the end add lima beans and stir for a min.
  • Now add 1/4 cup water, stir, cover and lower the flame.Let it cook for 3 mins. Now cook uncovered for another 2 mins. on low flame till the water evaporates.
  • Add 1 tbsp. butter and season the dish with salt and pepper. Stir and combine all the veggies with buttered seasoning.
  • Traditional dish of Native America "Succotash" is ready.
