Mixed beans sprout curry, the lovely creamy richness of this curry has always been hit with everyone in my family. Mild flavoured, delicious curry which conveniently cooks quickly too.
I have used about 15-16 types of different beans, but you can use whatever you can find in your kitchen. To make one cup quantity take few beans of each. In my opinion it's the best way to introduce some variety of beans in your diet without compromising on taste.
