Baked Bread & Chickpeas Cutlet With Bean Sprouts

We usually buy baguette (the french bread) atleast thrice a week, sometimes after having our dinner most of those bread slices will be sitting in my bread bag and they will turn hard like a rock..Usually i do bread toast with those bread slices, this time i soaked them water and and with some leftover cooked chickpeas, leftover bean sprouts i prepared a simple bread cutlet for our evening snacks, instead of shallow frying this cutlets i baked them in oven and with ketchup this baked bread cutlet vanished within few minutes, we enjoyed our baked protein packed and fabulous cutlets also all my leftovers turned our evening snacks quite a filling snack..This baked bread and chickpeas cutlet goes to Sunday Snacks-Healthy Snacks guest hosted by Divya of Dil Se..also goes to MLLA-21 guest hosted by Superchef, event by Susan and finalmy to Daisy Blue's CoL-Leftover Delicacies...


1no Baguette (cut as pieces)
1cup Cooked chickpeas
1no Onion(chopped)
1/4cup Bean sprouts
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
10nos Mint leaves (chopped)
5nos Curry leaves
1tsp Garam masala

Oil for baking

Soak the baguette pieces for few minutes,smash the cooked chick peas and clean the bean sprouts and mash with ur fingers, press the soaked baguette with ur palms to squeeze out the water, take the mashed baguettes,smashed chickpeas and the bean sprouts, chopped green chillies, curry leaves,chopped mint leaves, garam masala, salt in a large vessel, heat a few drops of oil, saute the chopped onions... add the sauteed onions to the bread-chickpeas mixture..
