In large frying pan, heat 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; cook peppers and onion for 5 minutes. Stir in curry paste; cook for 2 minutes longer, stirring constantly. Stir in coconut milk, lime rind and lime juice. Bring to a boil; cook for 4 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Transfer to bowl; set aside to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. In large bowl, stir together quinoa, coconut-vegetable mixture, chickpea purée, egg, coriander, flour and salt. Form into 20 individual patties, each 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick, placing on prepared baking sheet as each is formed. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour to firm patties.
