Chickpea Patties with Indian Spices

2 cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 tomato, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp coriander
cayenne to taste
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a food processor, add 1/2 of the chickpeas, oil and the spices. Puree until you have a hummus-type mixture. Pulse in the onion and tomatoes until well-chopped.

2. In a bowl, stir in the remaining ingredients and place the mixture in the fridge to chill for about 10 minutes. Shape into patties.

3. Cook the patties in a skillet on medium heat for 4-6 minutes per side.  Serve with raita.

Servings: 8 patties

* Patties fell apart — tried the recipe below that stayed together better.  Next time try combining recipes.
