Rajma oats patties

Lockdown is the new normal. Everything works as before with certain restrictions in place. Never mind, we started living and loving the new way of living life. Earth looks much greener.  Animals and birds are enjoying their share of this Earth happily. Well for us, eating only at home turns out to be a challenge and I believe every person who cooks can relate to me. Every other day I think of something new to appease the tastebuds of my family. Well other day I was going on probing the kitchen cupboards searching all possible items available to sort them out.

I found few packs of kidney beans, the first thing that came to my mind was the patty that I had in a Canadian restaurant before this COVID-19 stuck. Hence I decided to prepare the protein packed kidney beans patty. Binding agent are oats and walnuts here 😉 that way few healthy carbs and healthy fats too are in.
Lets jump to the recipe.

Ingredients (makes 20 medium sized patties)
Kidney beans/rajma - 250gms
Oats - 100gms
Walnuts - 10
Kashmiri red chilli powder - 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder - 2 pinches.
Green chillis - 1
Coriander leaves - 6-8sprigs
Onion - 1 chopped
Salt to taste - around a tsp. or bit more
Olive oil - 2-3 tsp.


  1. Soak the kidney beans in water for around 8hrs, boil the kidney beans in a pressure cooker for 4 whistles adding water. 
  2. Drain once cooked and let it cool down. Do not throw the drained water. You can use in case you need for binding if water content is less later in the patty dough. 
  3. Meanwhile in a processor add oats, kashmiri red chilli powder, turmeric, salt, walnuts and grind to form powder. 
  4. Once the kidney beans are cooled, grind adding no water.
  5. Now make a paste of coriander leaves, green chilli and onions together. 
  6. In a mixing bowl add the oats powder mixture, ground kidney beans mixture as well as the paste formed in step 5.
  7. Mix well, you may not need extra water, but if too dry add the water which was drained from cooked kidney beans which was retained earlier. 
  8. Add around 1 tsp oil and form the patty dough.
  9. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees in convention mode.
  10. Form patties by wetting your palm using water, lay them on the baking tray, coat the patties with remaining oil. 
  11. Bake them for 25-30 mins. Mine took around 28 mins to be exact. 
  12. After half the time just flip them over. Once done remove and enjoy hot with ketchup or place them between burgers adding a cheese slice, cucumbers, ketchup and mayonnaise and enjoy! 

  • Baking time may vary. Mine turns hot fast as I use the convention mode with fan. Hence 170 degrees Celsius should be fine for 25-30mins.
  • Shallow frying on a pan would do the task too, I wanted to make the task easier hence all at once I baked in oven. 

Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
