Prep the veggies: Grate the carrots, chop the onion and garlic.
Rinse the chickpeas and place in a bowl. Use a hand mixer or a food processor to get the right texture.
Then add the grated carrot..
..the crumbled feta cheese..
..as well as the onion and garlic.
Now add breadcrumbs and egg. Next time I will try with panko instead of breadcrumbs just for the variation, or perhaps a little bit of both.
Season with chili powder, cayenne, salt & pepper.
It is also nice to add some herbs, like parsley or basil. I added about 1 tblsp frozen herbs.
Form either burgers or smaller patties depending on how you plan to eat them.
Fry in olive oil and/or butter.
I used a skillet which I think gives the best result.
While the patties are on the stove, prep the sauce. Mix Turkisk or Greek yogurt with ajvar, sambal oelek, a splash of lemon juice and salt & pepper.
Spicy chickpea patties ready to be devoured!
Serve them as you like: In a pita bread with salad and ajvar sauce, or with a warm or cold salad.
Enjoy this tasty dinner!
