Chickpea Black Fungus Patties

Posted on


These are simple patties which hold their shape acceptably when made small enough. I served it with kale and potatoes mashed together with a little salt (stamppot).


I had no particular dish in mind when I made this.


  • oil to fry
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 250 grams chickpeas, cooked and drained
  • 5 mu-err mushrooms, soaked and drained
  • salt to taste


Chop the mu-err mushrooms into very fine pieces. Mince the garlic and add it to the mushrooms.

Heat a small amount of oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds and let them sputter. Turn down the heat to medium and add the mushroom and garlic to the pan. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Completely mash the chickpeas and stir in the cooked mushroom-garlic mixture. Add salt to taste.

Form small patties and on medium until lightly browned on each side and warm in the middle.
