Hey beautiful people – hope you’re all safe and well and settling into home life. I know it’s hard sitting at home when the sun is shining,
but the sun is really lifting my spirits! One of things I’m SUPER grateful for right now! I just finished an online yoga class,
Now for the recipe – if you have mung beans, here’s an easy recipe I made with a few simple ingredients. Had this for lunch and loved it!
Mung beans are great (high in potassium, magnesium, folate, fibre, and vitamin B6 – plus they are easily digested as compared with other beans)
but if you don’t have them use any beans you like. This recipe uses simple spices but if you don’t have garam masala, add some cumin powder
instead and maybe some paprika for extra flavour! Lastly, you can eat this like a burger in a bun too…. GO WILD!!!
TO MAKE PATTIES
3-4 tablespoons boiled mung beans
80g peas boiled and drained (5 tbsp)
1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste (or 1-2 cloves garlic, 1 inch piece ginger grated)
3 tablespoons chickpea / gram flour
1 small sweet potato, 80g, grated
1/2 – 1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon garam masala
Handful coriander leaves
TO COOK PATTIES
a little oil and cumin seeds
3 tablespoons yoghurt
1 small clove garlic
Salt and pepper
or can use any sauce or chutney e.g. coriander chutney
I also added some chilli jam to this when eating
Boil a bowl of mung beans, boil the peas, grate the sweet potato (no need to boil),
grate the ginger and garlic – now your main ingredients are ready!
To make the patties, just mix together all the patty ingredients,
taste for salt and flavour and make any adjustments.
Now warm the pan on low heat, make round balls (size of golf balls) and flatten.
Heat a teaspoon or less of oil on the pan, add a few cumin seeds and place the patties on the pan.
Depending on how big the pan is, you will be able to place them on the pan together.
Put a few drop of oil around the patties – you don’t need much!
When cooked on one side, flip them over and then, once brown and toasted on both sides, serve!
For the garlic yoghurt sauce, you literally just grate the garlic clove
and stir it into the yoghurt with salt and pepper! That’s it 🙂
