Chickpea Aloo Burger

Every week my son craves to eat burger and I try to be creative with my burger patties to squeeze in extra nutrients. This week I tried Chickpeas and Aloo sliders and it was a big hit. The burger patties along with other ingredients tasted absolutely delicious and we are adding this recipe to our weekly menu.
I think this would be the perfect recipe to share for long weekend as everyone loves grilling during hot weather. The burger patties came together super quickly and I used some fun ingredients to add flavors to it. The patties can be made ahead of time and they freeze well for few weeks. This would be a perfect lunch box option for kids.
Lookout for a reels video on Instagram on how to make these.
I love to see you all recreate my recipe so if you do make it, please DM me.
