How to make High Protein Chickpea Potato Hash Brown Recipe
To begin making the High Protein Chickpea & Potato Hash Brown Recipe, keep the potatoes boiled and peeled and ready to use.
Wash and soak chickpeas overnight in a bowl of water. Next morning transfer the water and the chickpeas into a pressure cooker along with some salt and close the pressure cooker.
Place the pressure cooker on medium-high heat and pressure cook for 25 minutes.
Once done, turn off the flame and allow the pressure to release naturally.
Open the pressure cooker, drain off the water and transfer the chickpeas into a mixing bowl.
Into the mixing bowl with the chickpeas, add the the potatoes and mash the mixture well, to this add salt, pepper, cumin powder, butter and lemon juice.
Bring the mixture together, ensuring it is well combined.
Divide the mixture into equal portions of lemon sized balls, and flatten between your palms shaping them into tikkis, which essentially are our Chickpea & Potato Hash Browns. Set aside.
Break an egg into a bowl, whisk it well and set aside. Next place the bread crumbs in a plate.
Dip each of the hashbrowns into the egg and then roll them into the bread crumbs.
Heat a skillet with oil on medium-low flame, once hot place the hashbrowns dipped in egg and rolled in breadcrumbs on the skillet, cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until you get a lovely brown colour.
