Falafel burger

I got to know about this recipe from BBC Good food. Falafel is a popular Middle Eastern fast food. It is usually served stuffed in pita bread with lettuce, tomatoes and tahini. Instead of serving in a pita bread, I used normal buns and nstead of deep-frying, I preferred shallow frying on a griddle. BBC Good food correctly says ‘These are great for anyone who craves a big bite but doesn't want the calories’.

Burger and Tawa Pulav 003

For Patties
1 tin chickpeas (or chole soaked over night and pressure cooked)
1 small onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp cumin powder
Coriander chopped
2 tbsp plain flour (maida)
Salt to taste
Oil for frying patties

For Burger
4 Buns
Tomato sliced
Lettuce leaves
Tomato ketchup

  1. Pat the chickpeas dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Take all ingredients except flour and oil in a food processor. Blend it to a smooth paste.
  3. Now add flour to it and mix well. Divide it into four portions and shape each portion into round patty.
  4. Heat a griddle, add little oil and roast patties from both sides.
  5. Serve the patties inside bun along with sliced tomatoes, lettuce leaves and tomato ketchup.
