I haven't been cooking much since June... most of the postings nowadays are back posts of what I've done in the previous weeks. Well, when one has a bun in the oven, there are always excuses that can be made at every corner, anytime, to be lazy.. kekekekeke...
Lima is five in Malay language.. This is not a Five Bean Soup..
In Cantonese it's called "pang mei dau". I think it's called lima bean, as that is the closest that I can get from the internet. It is a bean about 3-4 inches long, pale green colour with a matte surface in the shape of an eyebrow.
This is my grandaunt's favourite soup and she'll eat a lot of the beans because she believes this bean enhances our eyesight, and with that she claims the reason for her being able to thread a needle at 90.
1 1/2 cup
lima beans (correction : Hyacinth Beans)
300gm pork ribs or just meat (scalded)
1.5L boiling water.
Salt to taste
Trim the beans by discarding the top bits and pull away the top ligament.
Boil water, put in everything to simmer for 2 to 3 hours.
the Lima Bean.. I think
The beans are out of the pod after being boiled...
