Ingredients

  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2.5cm (1 in) fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 45ml (3 tbsp) vegetable oil
  • 500g (1lb) cooked chickpeas
  • 900g (2 lbs) cooked butternut squash
  • 150g (5oz) flour
  • 5ml (1 tsp) ground cumin
  • 5ml (1 tsp) ground coriander
  • 45ml (3 tbsp) roasted peanuts
  • Handful coriander leaves, chopped

Instructions

  1. Fry the chilli, garlic and ginger in a large frying pan with 15ml (1 tbsp) oil for 1 minute.
  2. Add the chickpeas, butternut, cumin, coriander, peanuts, leaves and flour to the pan and stir well.
  3. At this point the mixture shouldn’t be sticky to handle. If it is add a bit more flour until it isn’t anymore.
  4. Form 10 even-sized balls of the mixture then squeeze them flat in order to form burger patties.
  5. In a large frying pan, heat the remaining oil and fry the patties in batches until browned on both sides.
  6. Serve in a burger bun with your favourite fillings. In this case we used spinach, red onion, yogurt and cress. Enjoy!
