Call it Quinoa Patties/Kebabs whatever I loved these πŸ™‚ You can very much have it with burger or as a tea time snack. Perfect for both πŸ™‚ . This is a long pending recipe on my list after Sabudana Vada. Finally today I got time to prepare this. Quite a simple recipe and loved the way it turned out. Also I gave the Indian Spice touch πŸ™‚

Ingredients:

Quinoa : 1/2 cup (uncooked)

Water : 3/4 cup

Black Eyed Chickpea : 1/3 cup soaked overnight (You can use normal chickpea as well)

Spinach : 1 cup (finely chopped)

Carrot : 1 grated

Onion : 1/2 of a large chopped

Green Bell Pepper : 1/2 of a large chopped

Cilantro leaves : 15 to 20 strands chopped

Ginger Garlic Paste : 1 teaspoon

Oil : 1 teaspoon

Cumin Seeds : 1/2 teaspoon

Fennel Seeds : 1/2 teaspoon

Garam Masala : 1 teaspoon

Turmeric Powder : 1/4 teaspoon

Pepper Ground : 2 teaspoons

Salt : 2 teaspoon

Method:

  • BringΒ Quinoa and water to boil and simmer it for 6 minutes. Switch off, close it with lid for 20 minutes. By this time it would have got cooked completely.
  • Boil black eyed chickpea, in water until it is very soft. Cool down and grind it to a fine paste in a blender. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, fennel seeds when they crackle, add onion and ginger garlic paste, saute till translucent. Next add green bell peppers and saute for 2 minutes. Next add grated carrots and then spinach in every 2 mins time. Then add garam masala, pepper powder, turmeric powder, salt to this and mix well.
  • Now mix the cooked quinoa, mashed up black eyed chickpea, and the above veggie mix and combine well.
  • Meantime preheat oven to 425 F, grease a baking sheet with oil.
  • Oil your palms and make round patties.
  • Bake for 40 mins. After 20 mins, flip sides and bake.
  • If you feel that they don’t stick well together, dust the made patties with chickpea flour and then bake. I didn’t use it but when flipping sides, few of them did get distorted from shape. So better to use flour.

If you want it much crispier, change temperature to 450 and bake πŸ™‚

You can pan fry it as well. Just to avoid more oil consumption I baked it.

For the above mentioned quantity I got around 12 patties.
