Mango & Ginger Chickpea Burger

Mango & Ginger Chickpea Burger
This curried chickpea and lentil burger served in a brioche bun and oozing with mango & ginger chutney might tempt even the most hardened of meat-eaters! One of the world’s oldest known legumes, chickpeas are packed with protein and are a staple part of Indian cuisine. Lentils are none-too-shabby either with lots of protein and vitamins. Make this recipe ahead to save time if entertaining and don’t be afraid to layer it up for Instagram appeal.

  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • Red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 can green lentils
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • A handful of coriander, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp gram flour
  • 4 brioche buns, sliced (or 2 buns if each person is having a double burger)
  • Geeta’s Premium Mango & Ginger Chutney

  1. Place the onion in a bowl and cover with the red wine vinegar. Leave to pickle for 20 minutes

  5. Add the mixture to a blender along with the coriander and pulse a couple of times.
  6. Add the chickpeas and lentils and pulse until all the ingredients are chopped small and mixed, but not smooth. You can use a potato masher if you don’t have a blender.

  8. Pan fry each in vegetable oil until heated through and golden brown on both sides
  9. Using the grill or a griddle pan, toast the inside of the brioche buns
