    PinkCherryBlossom's Note:

    Often seen in Nigerian roadside stalls. For time I often used canned beans just be sure to drain them well. When you buy these from vendors you often have a choice of sauces some homemade, some shop bought all are spicy to complement the mild taste of the balls. You can add spice if you wish to the mix but I prefer plain balls so that I can use an assortment of sauces without taste clashes.

      In the Changing Course e-class, one of the guests makes a living in New England selling bean cakes from his native Africa. They are made of black eyed peas. He said there are five ingredients, but he did not say what they were. Do you know any other ways to make bean cakes? This recipe sounds very good. Will make it this week ! ! ! ! !
