The Pumpkin Chronicles #5: Pumpkin & Chickpea Fritters

Pumpkin tikkis 001

That pumpkin in going into everything, so why not some tikkis too? Inspired by a recipe online, I mixed pumpkin purée and grated pumpkin with cooked & drained chickpeas (mashed) and a boiled potato. Some freshly grated ginger, finely chopped green chilies for a little kick, and a roll around in some breadcrumbs to hold it all together. Shallow fried, and served hot with a green coriander & mint chutney. Very satisfying!

I did figure later that just the grated pumpkin (minus the purée) would probably be better to keep the mixture from getting too soft.

I would love to hear from you!
