Chickpea Patties

When i saw Yasmeen's Chickpea corn vada, i got tempted and wanted to make something similar at home. I had boiled chickpeas in my freezer. Instead of making(baking) chickpea corn vada, i shallow fried them and made them similar to my Aloo tikki. It was an instant hit at home. With all the protein in it, i was too happy that my kids liked it :)



Ingredients :
Boiled chickpeas - 2 cups
Potato - 1 (big)
Bread slices - 3
Redchilli powder - 1 spoon
Garam masala - 1/2 spoon
Salt to taste
Hing - a pinch
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Cilantro - 1/2 bunch, finely chopped




Method :
Mash the boiled chickpeas and potatos. Add crumbled bread, salt, chilli powder, masala, hing and turmeric powder and mash them well. Add the cilantro and mix them well and roll into equal sized balls. Make patties and shallow fry in a non stick pan.

Tastes good with Maggi tomato chilli sauce. My kids loved it with bread. They had it like sandwich. I didn't have the patience to keep them between the bread slices and eat. I kept gobbling 'em up, while cooking ;-) I used only 3,4 drops of oil per side of each patty. They looked little dry but they were not dry when tasted. They were really good.
I am sending this also to Sunshinemom's FIC: Yellow, Srivalli's MLLA, an event started by Susan and also to JFI Chickpea hosted by MS.

I am sending this to Deepa's CFK- Potato
