Channa Aloo Bhaji Burger/Chickpeas Potato Curry Burger Sandwich

If you would have went through my Eggless burger buns recipe, you would have noticed that i told that i served my softy,spongy burger buns with something interesting rather than the usual tikkis. Now you know how i served my eggless burger buns for our dinner. Yes i simply prepared a nutritious channa aloo bhaji aka chickpeas potato curry as much similiar like our humble 'Pav Bhaji' and served the burger buns along with. The sweetness of this buns merge very well with the spiciness of the bhaji and we had a super filling dinner with these both dishes. You can serve very well this semi thick bhaji as side dish with toasted burger buns or simply stuff the buns with the bhaji and enjoy as a sandwich. However we had them as sandwich, even my lil one who is not big fan of chickpeas enjoyed thoroughly this super filling fusion sandwich.

Since this buns are super spongy, this burger sandwich wont turn soggy hence you can carry this burger very well in your lunch box. Definitely this sandwich is a kid's friendly dish, since potato is added in this curry, am sure kids will enjoy thoroughly this super filling sandwich.This bhaji can prepared easily if you have some already cooked chickpeas and potatoes at home, just throw everything in a pan, add the pav bhaji spice powder,thats all. As i used grounded chickpeas along with whole chickpeas, this bhaji tends to turn semi thick, needless to say if anyone at home doesnt like chickpeas,you can feed them easily this way without their knowledge.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45.
