Light and Dark Chickpea Cutlets- Like Two Peas in a Pod

This ancient grain, whether called chickpea , garbanzo bean, chana (north India), Indian pea, ceci bean, Bengal gram, makes interesting, delicious and nutritious meals. I have used cooked ones, both light and dark (kala chana), blended the whole stuff with bread crumbs, salt, garlic, black pepper and cilantro and shaped them into cutlets- fried them - and off you go- put them in a bun,  serve them with your favourite sauce or just plain yoghurt (I do that)- they taste great!

These are like falfels..I love these and more over these being shallow fried they remain healthy as compared to falfels.I add fava beans too, gives them a nice taste.

Being a vegetarian chickpeas are a regular in our diet ~ I especially have a soft corner for the dark ones, mixing the two together is a brilliant idea!
