    Hi, Nice and quick recipe. Just a quick question – Why to parboil the lima beans? Cant they be cooked together with the Potatoes? Thanks.

    For stir fry, its better to par boil. If you cook the beans and potatoes together, you will need to add water to cook the beans and it will end up more like a gravy.
