Karamani/Black Eyed Beans Patties/Tikkis

Yesterday I posted a very healthy and delicious Black Eyed Bean Soup, I had about a cup of cooked beans left. So I made some healthy patties as evening snacks for my kids. It is so easy, quick and super healthy, you can have them for evening snacks or toast some bread slices, keep the patties in the middle along with a cheese slice and have them as sandwiches.

Here’s how to make Black Eyed Beans Patties/Tikkis with step by step photos…
Black Eyed Beans/Dry Karamani
1 cup Cooked /1 can
Green chillies
One inch piece
2 cloves
1 small boiled
1 small finely chopped
Curry leaves
Few finely chopped
Cilantro/Coriander leaves
2 tbsp finely chopped
½ tsp
As needed
To cook patties
Preparation time: 10 minutes      
Cooking time: 15 – 20 minutes    
Wash and soak the black eyed beans for 8 hours. Drain and wash them thoroughly in fresh water and pressure cook them enough salt and water for three whistles. After the steam releases open the lid, drain the water and cool the beans.

Pressure cook the potato, peel it and keep it aside. Chop the onions, garlic, ginger, green chillies and keep them aside.

Add the cooked beans, green chillies, ginger, garlic to the mixer and grind them to a coarse paste.

Then add the cooked potato, onions, curry leaves, coriander leaves, cumin seeds, salt and mix really well with hand.

Make lemon sized balls, flatten it a little to make patties.

Heat the tawa in meadium flame and cook the patties. Drizzle little oil around the sides and cook evenly on both the sides.

Serve them hot as evening snacks or toast some bread slices and make a healthy sandwich.

Drain the water completely before grinding the bean.
Pressure cook the potato along with the beans to reduce the time of cooking.
If you want you can add ¼ tsp of chilli powder, but I made this patties for the kids and the chillies I used were spicy. So I did not add the chilli powder.
