Black eyed peas and Split green gram Burger patties

I love this recipe for green gram and black eyed peas patties because its easy to make as well as tasty, two of my favorite qualities in a recipe! They aren't quite firm enough to toss grill, but are good for and very nutritious.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup dry split green gram
  • 1/2cup black eye peas
  • 2 carrots grated
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 slices bread, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp of freshly chopped garlic
  • 10 springs of cilantro/parsely/coriander  chopped
  • 1/4cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying
  • Amchur powder/chat masala---optional

Preparation:

Soak beans over night and cook them in a cooker, for 2 whistles. Cook them fine but keep an eye on it so that it may not turn mushy. Filter all water after cooking and dry them on a paper towel.
Sautee the onions and garlic till soft, about 3-5 minutes in 1tbsp of oil. In a large bowl, mash the beans until almost smooth(Let the some beans remain intact). Add sauteed onions and the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, adding the flour a few tablespoons at a time to combine well. Mixture will be thick.


Form bean mixture into patties, approximately ½ inch thick. Take plain flour in a bowl and dust the patties with flour and  fry patties in a small amount of oil until slightly firm.
Make veggie burgers with your favorite vegges, I made them with slice of tomato, onion and american cheese, mayo and mustard!
enjoy!!! :)
