From Brit Spice by Manju Malhi my favourite Indian/British cook. This recipe turns an ordinary snack into something really tasty and satisfying, and makes you want more curry for dinner!!

We enjoyed this, however, I think I would have enjoyed it more, had I not burnt the onions! Interesting mix of flavors. Will definitely make again...and this time, I'll keep an eye on the onions! Thanks linds!

Been looking for something to do with the tin of heinz in the cupboard and gave this a go. It was not half bad. Very mild a couldn't taste the spices as is but the onions were a nice addition. Next time I'll double the spices (bar the green chilli) or half the beans. All in all a good quick snack
