Method

  1. In a food processor, whizz the chickpeas, lemon zest, lemon juice, cumin, half the coriander, the egg and some seasoning. Scrape into a bowl and mix with 80g of the breadcrumbs and the diced onions. Form 4 burgers, press remaining breadcrumbs onto both sides and chill for at least 10 mins.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan until hot. Fry the burgers for 4 mins each side, keeping the heat on medium so they don’t burn. To serve, slice each bun and fill with a slice of tomato, a burger, a few red onion slices, some cucumber slices, a dollop of chilli sauce and the remaining coriander.

Tastes great, but mine were a bit crumbly and fell apart. Maybe next time i'll try using another egg to bind it together more :)

Made these for a food tech assignment, it was delicious and very easy to work with seeing as the other people in my food group all eat meat. I would definitely recommend this to everyone!

Seriously. .These are delicious, filling and nutrious! Everyone liked them ...even meat and 2 veg eating friend who was staying with us...plus they are cheap to make. The only addition I made was some grated. carrots. I will definitely be making these again.

Mmm these are so yummy! I made them with parsley (because I forgot to get any coriander) and added a spoon of curry paste. They were delicious and the family agreed! Will make then again!

Really tasty and easy to make! Left them in fridge for couple of hours to 'harden up' before cooking, and they firmed up nicely. Did not make any changes and will definitely make again.

These were absolutely superb, I am so pleased I found this recipe...enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-eaters equally. I added chopped fresh red chillies, 2 cloves garlic and plenty of milled black pepper (and a pinch of salt), as suggested by another commenter below. I think this really made the flavour well rounded, and as we all like plenty of strong seasoning we would have found it too bland without the additions. I also fried the chopped onion to soften it first, as suggested by another commenter, as don't like onion to be too raw tasting. I made the amount into 6 cakes, and after coating with the breadcrumbs and shaping, I drizzled with the oil and baked them in the oven at 200 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. This worked really well, they were crisp and kept their shape perfectly when transferred to the buns. I had no problem with them being crumbly, the consistency was excellent. I served with chopped roasted aubergines, onion slices and tomatoes ( oven roasted in chilli infused oil and tossed in some garam masla ), then garnished the vegetables with the mint yoghurt. Definitely going to be a regular recipe used in this house!

Delicious, filling, healthy, economical and easy to make. What's not to like? I'm not a veggie, but will definitely be making these again.

Really nice and easy to do - i was pleasantly surprised that they did not take too long. Used a hand blender instead of a food processor but it worked just as well. Will definitely be making these again.

Just made these for a vegetarian friend. Very easy to make, tasted wonderful. Even to non veggies!

I have made these burgers so many times, not just for my son and his wife who are veggies, but for myself as well. I love them, they are very tasty and filling and very easy to make. They are quite crumbly so treat them gently when cooking. I prefer mine in pitta bread or on their own with salad. Can't wait to eat them again!

Really yummy burgers and super easy and quick to make. I didn't have a food processor or hand blender, but managed just fine with a potato masher and muscle. We had two burgers each (but no bread!), served with salad, which seemed like a good amount. Will definitely make again as so cheap too!

A great veggie burger that reminded me the flavours of India. The earthy notes of the herbs/spices worked well with the lemon and it complemented the chickpeas. Would make it spicier next time.

Made this last night! I just left out the cumin and added chillies but kept everything else the same. It was delicious!

These were delicious!! Made them with a hand blender, as didn't have a food processor, and they turned out great! Were quite liquid-y when first made, but firmed up nicely in the fridge. Nice with fried onion :)
