Chickpea And Millet Patties

millet patties

Do you like millet? Some say that it is birdseed. You need to try this recipe, a very tasty dish and a great lunchbox filler. I like to munch on these when I travel, they are a great snack on the road or with a picnic too. This recipe is wheat and gluten free. Makes 5- 6 patties.   Double the amounts by all means. Tasty and chock full of protein and are nice served cold as well, no birdseed here


  • 1 onion
  • 1 can of chickpeas , or even better 1 cup of freshly cooked chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon chilli powder (or chilli to taste, or omit)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ground pepper to taste
  • ½ cup of ground millet
  • 1 egg
  • olive oil


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and process into a coarse paste. If you don’t have a food processor, cut the onion as finely as you can, mash the chick peas and mix everything together as best you can.
  • Shape the patties and gently coat outside with extra ground millet.
  • Place in the fridge for ½ hour to firm up. Place patties in pan with a little olive oil and cook until golden brown.
  • Serve with yoghurt and diced cucumber dressing.
