  •     400g can chickpeas, drained
  •     1 onion, peeled and very finely chopped
  •     200g freshly mashed potato
  •     2 tsp mild chilli powder
  •     ¼ tsp turmeric
  •     1 small egg, lightly beaten
  •     1 tsp roasted coriander seeds, crushed
  •     2 tbsp finely chopped mint leaves
  •     2 tsp roasted cumin seeds crushed
  •     2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
  •     Salt
  •     Low calorie cooking spray


    Place the chickpeas and onion in a food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes or until roughly mashed. 

Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the potatoes, chilli powder, turmeric, egg, roasted coriander and cumin seeds and the chopped herbs. Season well with salt, cover and chill in the fridge for 5-6 hours or overnight.

    Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas 6. Divide the chickpea mixture into 12 portions and shape each one into a flat cake or patty.

    Place the patties on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Spray with low calorie cooking spray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through. Serve immediately with cucumber.
