Dukkah Chickpea Burger

This dukkah chickpea burgers are bursting with flavour and full of plant-based protein.

For the patties, I use chickpeas and carrot as a base and is infused with dukkah, mint leaves, onion and tahini. I paired my burger patties with nigella seeds burger buns, sauteed radicchio with pomegranate molasses, and topped with crispy onion.
