Chick Peas Buttons

Holiday season is here and I often hear my daughter asking for some yummy snacks. I prepared chana masala for my hubby's tiffin box and was left with some boiled chick peas, so I came up with this recipe.
Though my daughter N is not very fond of chick peas but she loved these fried buttons.


Boiled Chick Peas - 1 cup
Large bread slices- 3
Besan - 2 tblsp
Milk - 3 tblsp
Lemon juice - 1 tblsp
Amchoor ( Mango powder) - 1/2 tsp
Salt, Chilli powder - to taste
Coriander leaves chopped - 1 tblsp
Oil - To fry

Procedure :
  • Grind the chick peas without any water.
  • Soak the bread slices in milk just for few seconds then squeeze the bread.
  • Mix the chick peas, bread, besan, lemon juice, coriander leaves, amchoor, salt and chilli powder. Mix everything together to form a smooth dough. The dough will look like this-

  • Make small balls of the mixture and flatten little to look like buttons.
  • Heat oil and fry the buttons on medium to high flame till nice golden brown.
  • The buttons will disintegrate if the flame is low.

Enjoy the buttons hot with some tomato ketchup.
