Curried Chickpea Burgers

2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 carrot, peeled and grated
3 tsp curry paste (I used Patak's Cumin & Coriander)
2 tbsp water
400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 slices bread, whizzed into crumbs
2 handfuls cashew nuts
1 handful fresh coriander, chopped
black pepper

Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onion, celery and garlic for 5 minutes, add the curry paste and water and cook for another few minutes. Add the grated carrot and cook for two minutes. Season with pepper.

Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl. Shape into burgers and put in the fridge for 30 minutes before frying in a little olive oil for a few minutes on each side.

Makes 8 burgers

Serve in a burger bun with salad leaves and mustard.

I made 8 burgers, well when I say burgers, they actually fell apart. So they weren't so much burgers, but more a burger crumble! I am thinking of adding a beaten egg next time.

I had some mixture left over and it was just too tasty to discard. So I grated a carrot and some cheddar into the mixture, added a dollop of mayonnaise and mixed together. I filled soft tortilla wraps with this gorgeous filling along with some salad leaves. Voila, lunch for tomorrow! Should be good :)
