Pasta and Bean Balls

The kiddos love pasta with sauce, so I decided bean balls to go on top.  Moxy liked them, but Ruby turned her nose to them.  I made them with Aduki beans.  I usually fried bean balls which make them crunchy and yummy, but with these I baked them.  They came out edible, and only okay.  I am going to post the recipe as it was really hard finding because some people believe that recipes should not be posted.  

Recipe from the website of http://sriannapurna.blogspot.com/2009/07/spaghetti-with-bean-balls-for-veggie.html:

Black Beans - 1 can (Can be substituted with Kidney Beans, Garbanzo or any other bean - If using dry beans, soak in water for 8 hrs & pressure cook before use)

Red Onion - 1 medium - finely chopped

Wheat Bread - 2 slices - corners removed

Green Chillies - 3 - finely chopped (Optional)

Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp

Dry Mango Powder/Amchur - 1/2 tsp
