Chick Pea Basil Burger

Here's an easy-to-make vegetarian burger inspired by this POST, if you have some readymade soup, this makes for a perfect quick-fix dinner!


Garbanzos/Chick peas - 1 can
Medium potato - 1 cooked and peeled
Fresh basil - 20 leaves, finely chopped
Bread crumbs - 1 tbsp for the mix and 1/4 cup for coating the pattie
Salt to taste
Fresh crused pepper
Optional - 2 tsp of any masala powder like garam masala or red chili powder

Drain the water out of the canned garbanzos and add them to a dish. To this, add the boiled potato and mash them up well (make sure it's not a complete paste, keep it coarse). Stir in 1 tbsp of crumbs and all other ingredients and mix well. In the mean time heat a flat griddle and spray some oil. Scoop up a handful of the potato mix, flatten them like a pattie, coat it on both sides with the bread crumbs and place them on the griddle. Flip over and spray a little more oil as required till both sides are browned and well done.
