  1. Hi Manjula!

    These are absolutely delicious. I plan to send this recipe to my sisters!

    Before I do that, do you have any tips on getting them to stick together better in the pan? My batch is falling apart a bit on the stove – not alot, but they are not holing together as much as I would like.


  2. Would you suggest that it is possible to bake these…as a more healthy option? Perhaps at 400, at 10 minutes per side? And do you think they would freeze well?

  3. This is now my favorite sandwich. I am of caucasian decent and just use jalepeños and flavor is still great. I have never had a green chile and would not know where to get one, or how to pick it out. Thank you Manjula for a great recipe.

  4. Just enjoyed these delicious patties with homemade gluten free bread. Perfect after a six mile run in rain, snow and high winds.

    Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe

    With love


  5. People of caucasian decent…USE CAUTION WITH CHILIES!!!!! the meal is delicious but if your not use to heat or think your ok with the heat you usually eat at home (hot sauce,salsa, etc) STOP! and majorly reduce the amount maybe not even use them! Other wise delish!

    1. Different chile peppers have different levels of heat. If you do not like or cannot tolerate spicy foods, try a green chile with a lower level of heat. I suggest starting with jalapenos and if they are not spicy enough for you, try moving up to Serranos, and then on to Habaneros.

  6. I just made these using mini bulkies for my kids lunch, left the chilis out for theirs,but in for mine.

    I can’t believe I just got the kids to devour chickpeas!

    Another delicious hit!

    Thanks again Manjula!
