Ingredients

  • 1 (14-ounce) can refried beans
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 tablespoons chana masala, recipe follows
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
Chana Masala:
  • 2 tablespoons mango powder
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate powder
  • 2 tablespoons fenugreek leaves (available online or at most Asian markets, or substitute with celery leaves)
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon red chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

Put the refried beans into a large bowl along with the onion, flour, chana masala, and salt and mix well with your hands. Divide and form the mixture into 4 equal-size patties. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Place the patties in the pan and fry until they are golden brown on all sides, about 4 to 5 minutes, turning. Serve the burgers on whole wheat buns with desired toppings.

Chana Masala:

To make the Channa Masala: Blend the mango powder, pomegranate powder, fenugreek leaves, garam masala, turmeric, red chile powder, and salt and store in an air-tight jar for up to 3 months.
