Butter Beans Stir Fry

So, this was actually an impromptu dish.
The story goes like this…I was asked to cook something in the Sabras kitchen, so I ended up making Daal Khichdi I was talking to a fellow colleague and a close friend and soon came to realise she doesn’t eat carbs! So I thought to myself, I’m not letting her go hungry even if it means making something simple but I will make something for her. So all night I was scratching my head thinking what to make! I don’t know why but randomly Butter Beans came into my mind, then I thought, what do I do with it?
The next day I did a shop before I went to work, and thought to myself I’ll figure it out when I get there.
So, the scene is…I’m in the Kitchen, I have made the Daal Khichdi and now I am standing in front of the stove with a Frying Pan a can of Butter Beans, Peppers, Onions and Baby Sweetcorn and I got hit my the light bulb moment and thought…Oh Stir Fry!
So thus Butter Beans Stir Fry was born!
