Chickpeas/Channa Burger(Indian Style)

Today is the final day for the blogging Marathon#10 and I made  chick peas burger in Indian style for the lunch box.Burgers are one of the favorite of my son and likes to take it for lunch box.He is a very picky eater and options are less for his lunch box food,I like to incorporate some legumes and veggies in his favorite foods to make it more healthier.Chick peas burger is protein rich,flavorful,nutritious and a balanced meal which is ideal for kids lunch box.

Method
 Soak the chick peas overnight and cook it ina pressure cooker with enough water and a pinch of salt.Drain the water and grind the chick peas coarsely in a blender,set it aside.
Heat a pan with oil and saute the onion then ginger&garlic paste.Once it is done add the finely chopped vegetables and saute it with salt till it becomes soft.
Add the powders and stir it well,add the ground chick peas and mix it well,turn off the stove and add coriander leaves,allow it to cool down.Add the wheat flour to the mixture and mix it well.
Divide it to 6 equal portions and make patties out of it,keep it aside.
Shallow fry the patties in the pan with oil till both the sides get cooked or bake it in the oven for 300 degree Fahrenheit for 20 mins.Continue for the remaining patties.Now the patties are ready.
Take the burger bun and smear a generous amount of mint chutney in the inner side of one slice and keep lettuce,then patty followed by onion, tomato slice and ketchup.Cover it with the other slice.Insert a tooth pick from the top.
Burger is ready to eat.
Enjoy it with some juice and chips.


  • Here I used mint chutney,it can be replaced with mayonnaise,sour cream,cream cheese or any other sauce.
  • Veggies of your choice can be added and the patties can be grilled in the grill pan.
  • Wrap it in an aluminum foil to maintain the freshness.
  • Patties can be made previous day and store it in the refrigerator.
