  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Tip the potato wedges onto a baking tray and drizzle with 1½ tbsp oil; season. Toss to coat, then space out on the tray. Roast for 30-35 mins, turning halfway, until crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle.
  2. Meanwhile, pat the chickpeas dry with kitchen paper and tip into a food processor with the onion, lemon zest, half the coriander, the curry powder and torn bread. Season well, then pulse to a chunky paste that holds together when pressed. Shape into 4 patties. Dust the patties with the flour to coat.
  3. Heat 1½ tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the patties for 2-3 mins each side until golden and crisp.
  4. Put the carrot in a bowl and toss with the lemon juice, remaining coriander and a pinch of salt. Add 1 tbsp mango chutney and a few lettuce leaves to each split roll. Top with a patty, some carrot, then the bun tops. Serve with the potato wedges and leftover carrot salad.
