Unfussy cooking with just tomatoes and onions helps highlight the nutty flavour of beans. Here, the addition of potato balls transforms a simple mixed beans curry into a more elaborate delicacy, without losing its basic nature. The addition of cashews or peanuts provides a much needed crunch in the midst of the potato mash, making the mixed beans curry with potato balls an all-rounder.
