My chickpea patties are a great alternative to meat burgers and there is no compromise on the taste! The chickpea & potato patties can be eaten with or without the bun, I find they are great accompaniment to any meal served without the bun.
These veggie patties are super easy to make and can be served in a number of ways. I like to form the mixture into larger patties and serve them in hamburger buns as a main meal or as a side dish these meat free patties work very well.
You could serve these chickpea patties just as you would a burger with cheese, ketchup, mustard and salad. They are also delicious served on their own with a little coriander raita or cucumber raita.
Texture is important! If you prefer the chickpea patties to be more like a beef burger, place the ingredients in a food processor and blend until quite smooth but not as smooth as hummus.
If you don’t like them to be too smooth, I like to mash the ingredients with a potato masher first and then by hand. When you do it this way, you get a lot more textures which I like but the patties fall apart more easily.
Make the recipe your own:
In my ingredient list I suggest just two green chillies add a few more if you want to up the spice level. You could also use red chillies if that is all you have on hand. As mentioned earlier use a blender if you like really smooth patties but I prefer just to use a hand masher as I prefer a chunkier patty recipe.
