Millet Patties / Millet Rajma Patties / Millet Bean Patties

Millet Bean Patties
Just playing with the only available millet/Foxtail millet. One or the other day I cook Millet/Foxtail Millet in any form. This time its Millet Patties / Millet Patties with Rajma or kidney beans. These millet patties are so easy to make, healthy, gluten free, vegan and perfect for a guilt free low calorie snack. These vegetarian Millet Bean Patties makes a perfect after school snack for kids. My kidoo loved these patties with his favorite Garlic Ranch.
You can even use this patties to make Burger or sandwich, Either way these patties tastes yummy. I actually wanted to make these patties with raw banana but right before boiling the plantain I remembered that I have some left over mashed Rajma after using it for Rajma paratha. So I used Rajma here as binding but you can use aloo/mashed potato, mashed plantain, mashed chickpea or any desired beans type.  Now off to the recipe...
