How to make Vegetarian Chickpea Burger Recipe
To begin making the Vegetarian Chickpea Burger Recipe, we will first make the chickpea patties for the burger.
Make sure you have the potatoes boiled. Peel and cube the potatoes.

Turn off the flame and allow the pressure to release naturally.
Once the pressure has released, open the cooker, drain the excess water and set the chickpeas aside.
Add chickpeas and potatoes into the food processor along with ginger, onion, green chillies, mint leaves, roasted cumin powder, chaat masala powder, gram flour, lemon juice and salt to taste.
Blend this mixture until it forms a coarse mix. You don't have to grind to make a smooth mixture, but just blend so all the ingredients come together.
Transfer the blended chickpea patty ingredients into a large bowl. Check the salt and spices and adjust to suit your taste.
The next step is to cook the patties. Divide the patty mixture into 6 equal portions and shape them into rounds. Lightly flatten them with your fingers and keep them aside.
