I found this recipe on Rhonda Jean's blog - and decided to give it a try, because it looked remarkably good. Following are Rhonda's simple instructions:
Into a blender or food processor add:
two cups of pre-soaked chickpeas
2 small onions
1 stick celery
1 cup dry breadcrumbs or two potatoes
salt and pepper
¼ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon cumin
Whiz that up until it forms a thick paste. Form into patties and fry in oil until brown on both sides.
One detail: I forgot all about the eggs! Naturally, it made the mass in my blender a bit dry. Adding some water solved the problem. It was still very very nice, and it also made the recipe vegan (for those of you to whom this might matter). The chickpea burgers (I made ours almost bite-sized) were happily consumed by my hungry husband and myself. They are great served with fresh salad.
Rhonda, who lives in Australia, mentioned it's a local meal. My husband and I both agreed it reminds us of our local dish, falafel.
Sorry for not adding a photo of my chickpea burgers to accompany this post. I'm not at home right now so what's left of them is out of my reach. :-) You may, however, take a glimpse of how Rhonda's came out.
