Soak Kala chana overnight. Pressure cook with salt till soft. Grind to a smooth paste and combine with equal quantity of mashed potato. Mix in some ground cumin, paprika, finely chopped onions, minced garlic & jalapeños, freshly chopped cilantro and bread crumbs. Form into big patties and deep fry one at a time!
Split buns, spread some sour cream seasoned with salt n pepper lemon juice….for added zing you could also add some chipotle sauce to the sour cream. Place some pea shoots/lettuce on top followed by the chickpea patties. Top with tomatoes and avocados. Sprinkle some salt n smoked paprika. Top with some more pea shoots. Cover with top of bun and serve immediately!
Note: for a healthier version, you can cook the chickpea patties on a nonstick pan using a little oil spray instead of deep frying!
