• 2 x 300g cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups thick Greek-style yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3 green onions, finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney
  • 1 cucumber, sliced, to serve



  1. Pulse chickpeas in food processor until roughly chopped. Add 1/2 cup yoghurt, curry powder, egg and breadcrumbs. Process until mixture is well-combined, but still chunky. Spoon into a large bowl. Add green onions and coriander. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until well-combined.
  2. Roll 2 tablespoons of mixture per chickpea patty into balls. Place on a greased baking tray and put in the fridge until required.
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Flatten balls into patties. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  4. Combine remaining yoghurt and chutney and mix well. Serve with cucumber slices and chickpea patties.
