Hi All! 🙂 Here I’m with my next recipe, Chickpea Burger Patties (Air Fryer, Stove top) also called as Falafel burger patties. Just like my previous Air – Fryer Recipes , I have given BOTH stove-top and air-fryer methods. Check the pics below and choose the right method that suits you!

This was the scene when my 3 kids came back from their weekend classes (activities), & while I was half way in making these patties…

Chickpea Burger Patties (Air Fryer & Stove top)

My younger daughter, very excitedly: “Wooow!! burger patties! Amma, so are we having burgers for dinner???!!!”.  Me: “hmmm…that’s the plan but you will have to wait for some half an hour more…”. My elder daughter: “Okay sure, Amma! in the mean while, let us taste these patties with the dips first”. For which I agreed and took few snaps while they were devouring them.

But, later I realised, they were so hungry that none of the patties were left. Couldn’t make the burgers too. 🙁  I made this homemade dip, which was a winner. Shall promise to share the recipes for both the dip & burgers very soon!

Step wise pics Procedure for Chickpea Burger Patties (Air Fryer & Stove top):

PREP WORK(to boil chickpeas & sweet potatoes):

  • Take the chickpeas into a wide vessel, wash them thoroughly.
  • Add 3 times the quantity of water and let them soak overnight / for 7 to 8 hrs.
  • Later, strain the water.
  • Wash the sweet potatoes, do not peel, cut them into cubes / rounds.

TO BOIL ON STOVE TOP:

Take the soaked chickpeas and sweet potatoes together into the pressure cooker. Add water up to the level of the chickpeas. Pressure Cook on stove top under high for 5-6 whistles.

TO BOIL IN AN INSTANT POT / ELECTRIC PRESSURE COOKER:

Take the soaked chickpeas and sweet potatoes together into the instant pot. Add water up to the level that everything is sunk. Close the lid, set the valve to SEALING. Select ‘Pressure Cook’ mode under HIGH PRESSURE, for 5 mins.

TO MAKE PATTIES:

Mash the sweet potatoes & chickpeas coarsely. Into the same bowl, take the cumin / jeera powder, salt along with chopped green chillies, onion and coriander leaves.
Mix up everything to make the batter. Make small balls as shown, and then pat them with your palm to form small patties.

STOVE-TOP METHOD

Put a frying pan on stove-top, under medium flame. Pour the oil, let it heat. Gently, place the patties, pan fry them on one side for 2 mins.
Using a spatula, gently turn each of the patty to the other side. Let them fry until they turn golden brown in colour. Done!

AIR-FRYER METHOD

Brush the base of air-fryer mesh with oil / use an oil-spray throughout. Place the nugget patties over it. Cook for 8-9 mins on one side, at 200ºC / 390ºF
Gently flip to the other side, give a bit of oil-spray (if needed) and fry for 5-6 mins more, at same temperature. Done!

Tips:

  • I have used black chickpeas while garbanzo beans / yellow chickpeas also work perfectly.
  • The prep time is given as 15 mins, where I excluded the soaking time of 7-8 hrs.
  • If using canned chickpeas, skip the pressure cooking steps.
  • Adjust the salt & spice as per your taste.
  • You can store the pressure cooked chickpeas & sweet potatoes ground mix, in the fridge and make the patties instantly.
  • For the air-fryer method, I just brushed the mesh, which worked perfectly. You can even eliminate the oil completely, and brush the mesh with water.
  • You can freeze these, UNCOOKED / COOKED patties.
  • Just pile up one above the other, but separate each one by using baking paper. Take them out, just fry them directly. You need not thaw them.

Result:

  • These, Chickpea / Falafel Burger Patties (Air Fryer & Stove top), are perfectly cooked both outside and inside.
  • Its a complete power packed, ALL IN ONE appetiser (Vegan, Carbs Filled, Gluten free, RICH IN Protein, Iron & Fiber), patties.
  • I served them with tomato ketchup and homemade yogurt dip, along with a healthy salad of salad cucumber & carrot slices.
  • They were flavourful and tasted scrumptious.
