Keema patties with chickpea and yoghurt salad


"Keema is an Indian dish made with mince meat - these patties have similar flavourings and make a spicy alternative to burgers". (extract from Olive Magazine)
This versatile chickpea salad would go well with most meats, nice for a summer salad at a bbq, or just with pitta bread or naan bread for a light lunch. It's a recipe from July edition Olive Magazine.

Ingredients
Serves 2

300g lean lamb mince
a small bunch of coriander chopped
half a red onion grated
half tsp all spice
1 tsp garam masala
half tsp turmeric
half tsp ginger grated
naans to serve
mango chutney to serve
SALAD
ground nut oil
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
400g chickpeas
4 tbsp of yoghurt
half a red onion sliced
small bunch of coriander chopped

Method
Put the mince, coriander, onions, chilli, spices and ginger in a bowl with lots of seasoning then mix really well with your hands. Season and form into approx 10 small flat patties
To make the salad, heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Cook until the seeds start to pop and become fragrant. Tip in the chickpeas and season well. Stir around for a couple of minutes and take off the heat.
Fry the patties in a separate non stick pan until browned and cooked through. (you should  not need extra fat)
Put the yoghurt and red onion in a bowl and tip in the cooled chickpeas and spices. Toss the add the coriander and toss again. Serve with the patties, warm naan breads and mango chutney

  1. Am just attempting to cook this delicious looking receipe and have just realised that I have forgotten to put the garam masala and tumeric in the patties and have forgotten to save any red onion for the salad!!

  2. I think there is plenty of flavour in them, so don't worry. For the salad have you got a normal onion you could chop up or some spring onions perhaps.
