Delicious "burgers" made out of split peas, oats and carrots. They are ridiculously easy to make and just as easy to eat. Bhima burgers are delicious on home baked buns or also plain with some ketchup or chutney.

1 lb green split peas
2 1/4 cups water
2 cups oats
2 medium sized carrots grated
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
3 teaspoons sea salt
Oil/Ghee to shallow fry

1. Wash the split peas and then place them in a bowl with water enough to cover the peas and 2 inches of the bowl above the peas. Cover and soak overnight.

2. Pour out the soaking water and rinse the peas in fresh water.

3. In a blender or food processor, grind the peas to a rough paste using enough water to keep it from clumping up like dough, then pour into a large bowl.

4. Mix the oats, carrots, salt and pepper in the bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes.

5. Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add some oil/ghee to cover the bottom of the pan. Shape the mix into patties (they will be a bit wet), and fry evenly on each side until golden/dark brown. Make sure you let the patties cook enough before turning it otherwise they will fall apart.



I thought devotees dont eat carrots

We do eat carrots :-)

Hare Krishna - Many Vaishnavas (followers of the Krishna conscious philosophy) do eat carrots, but there's always a variety of personal choices about food items. So I suppose there are people who choose not to eat carrots.

Bhima veggie burgers

I tried this recipe and was really impressed, they were the tastiest veggie burgers i have eaten.i did make a few adjustments in that i cooked the peas untill a puree rather than blending them as i find that if the peas are not wellcooked first they give me indigestion. I also baked them in the oven on a baking tray with oil on, rather than frying them.
