Bean burger patties

I love any kind of burgers and when I feel like eating them at home I used to get the masala burgers from Trader Joes..I used to make my own version of burgers adding my own favorite toppings..I decided to make my own patties in an Indianized way and after researching came upon a recipe..I used black eyed beans and a small amount of chickpeas i making the burgers..Any beans and veggies can be used in making these..Here goes my version..

                             

Ingredients

Black - eyed beans - 1 cup
Chickpeas - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1/2 choped roughly
Ginger - 1 inch
Garlic - 3 pods
Green Chillies - 2
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 2 teaspoons
Gram flour / Besan - 3 tablespoons
Lime juice - 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste

                              

Directions

Add all these ingredients and blend them together and adjust the salt and seasonings.
Add a little water if necessary while blending..The blended mixture should hold together to form patties.If it is too wet and do not hold together, add a little more flour..
Divide into equal sized balls and press them slightly to form patties of about quarter inch thick..
Refridgerate for about half an hour so that it becomes firm..
It can be cooked shallow frying, deep-frying or baking them..
If baked it should be brushed with oil..Otherwise it might dry off..They should be cooked until they turn golden brown in colour..
I baked them and topped the patties with tomato, onions, mustard sauce, jalapeno pickles and lettuce..Place these between burger buns and enjoy!

                               

I am too proud to show off my medal Dhivya has awarded for running the Recipe Marathon..Thanks a lot Dhivya..It was fun running the marathon and getting new friends..

                                        

I was really happy to discover Joelen's blog..Under the title Join my cooking adventures in cyberspace, she has an array of exclusive events which are unique and fun to participate..So my bean burger goes off to the Burger Bonanza..
