Chickpeas and Kidney beans patty

This is a very good recipe with chickpeas and kidney beans. Beans are very good for health and high in protein. I found this recipe easy to make and improves my protein intake. I have only added selected vegetables but you can add any veggies you like and spice it up the way you want. Also you can shape them into small nugget or burger or patty.

To reduce the cooking time I am using tinned beans.

Makes about 4-5 patty
Chickpeas boiled: 200gms
Red kidney beans boiled: 200gms
Ginger: 1 inch
Garlic clove: 1
Onion: 1 small
Boiled potato: 1 medium
Coriander: handful
Green chili: 3-4 (depending on your taste you can add more)
Salt to taste
Dijon mustard: 1/2 table spoon
Extra virgin olive oil
Bread crumbs

Mix all ingredients except for oil, bread crumbs and potato in a blender and make a coarse paste. [Note: can add carrot, green beans, beetroot, cabbage, green peas, sweet corn etc.]

Take it out on a plate and add boiled potato to give it good binding. Taste the patty mix and alter the spices, salt accordingly.
Heat the pan and take bread crumbs on a flat surface. Take bean mix and shape it into nice flat patty, burger or nugget. Roll it on to bread crumbs (we want a thin layer of bread crumbs).

Place the patty on the pan and add few drops of olive oil.
Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes until patty turns brownish. Flip over and cook on another side.
Serve hot with salad of your choice. Here I am serving with baby spinach and cherry tomatoes.
