I was looking for a quick and easy lunch without needing to go to the store. I had a can of chickpeas and onion and decided to start mixing. These are not vegan, as there is egg. They turned out wicked yummy.
Curry Spiced Chickpea Burgers
1 can chickpeas, drained and mashed
1 onion, grated
1 summer squash, grated
2 cloves of garlic, grated
1/2 cup oatmeal
1-2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp garam masala
salt and pepper
Sauté the onion, squash, and garlic in a combination of butter and olive oil.
Season with salt and pepper.
Mix into mashed chickpeas and add curry powder and garam masala. Taste for seasoning. Add more curry or garam masala if necessary.
Once seasoning is right, mix in egg and oatmeal.
Form 4 patties and cook on medium heat in butter or olive oil until solid and browned.
Serve with your favorite burger toppings although chutney is an excellent topping.
