Chickpea Cakes

"I was the lucky recipient of one of these tasty morsels at dinner out one night, and now we're ALL the lucky recipients of this recipe! :) Even if you're cutting back on sodium, I suggest adding even just a teensy-weensy salt. It really makes a difference. These can be an appetizer and might be nice served them with a yogurt sauce. These also reheat well. I reheat them in my toaster oven. (Prep time and cook time do not include time to bake the potato.)"

    Excellent! I made this this evening as a part of our Dhanteras festival appetiser party celebration and also mom's bday that's today:) I added 1/4 tsp. red chilli powder, used a little more than 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. black pepper in addition to all the other spices mentioned. Instead of baking my potato, I first peeled it, then cut it into dices and boiled it in plenty of water till it was tender and broke easily with a fork/knife. I used 1 small onion instead of just 1/2. We make these patties often on rainy days and enjoy these with tea back home in India. Normally, use of cardamom powder in these is unheard of, but, I enjoyed it! I don't recall using curry powder as well in preparing these patties, but from now on, I will:) These made 7 patties for me. These go well with tomato ketchup also in case one doesn't have a yogurt sauce/ plain yogurt on hand. How about trying this next time: After you make the patties, take a slice of bread. Put a leaf of iceberg lettuce on it. Add some tomato ketchup on top. Place a single chickpea cake on the ketchup. Pour some ketchup on top(My bro. suggests pouring some Thousand Island dressing here). Top with another slice of bread. Chow down your potatoey burger in style! Enjoy! :) Enjoy!
