Tamayya (Green Hamburgers)

2 cups broken beans (foul madshoosh)
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander
1/4 cup finely chopped dill
1 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (1 small onion)
2 Tbsp finely chopped garlic
1 1/2 - 2 tsp salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp pepper, or to taste
1 tsp dry coriander powder
chili powder (optional)
sesame seeds
oil for frying

Place the beans in a large bowl of water and rinse several times
until the water is clear. Fill the bowl with at least 6 cups of
water, cover and allow them to soak for 2 to 3 days. Wash the greens
and dry well, this makes them easier to chop. Remove the tough
parts of the stem and then finely chop the leaves and the remaining
delicate stems. Measure the greens after they are chopped, but do
not pack them down into the cup. Wash the green onions and chop
both the white onion part and the green stem. Chop the onion and
garlic. Drain the beans and grind very fine. If you are grinding
the beans in a food processor, turn the machine on empty and slowly
drop through the tube onto the moving blade. Place the beans in a
bowl and set aside. Add the greens, onions and garlic to the
processor, blend well. Add the mashed beans to the processor and
process until the mixture looks green. Transfer the mixture to a
bowl, add the spices and baking soda, mix everything until well
blended. Cover the bowl and let sit for at least 30 minutes. The
longer the better so the flavors blend. If you do not cook all the
batter, cover and store in the refrigerator. Heat a medium saute
pan, when hot add 1/2 inch of oil and heat until it is hot, lower
the heat slightly. To shape the patties, take a large soup spoon
and fill the bowl of the spoon with some of the batter, pressing
it firmly into the spoon. Sprinkle the top with sesame seeds and
then push it off the spoon into the hot oil. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes
or until it has turned brown. Turn the patties over and cook again
2 to 3 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oil to a paper towel
to drain. Don't let the oil get too hot or the crust will get too
crisp or if the oil cools down too much, the patties will soak up
too much oil.
