Mash garbanzos in a large bowl or blend in a food processor until a chunky paste is formed. Set aside.
Steam potatoes until soft. While potatoes are steaming, saute onion in oil over low heat until golden, about 7 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, tomatoes, chile pepper and corn. Season with salt and pepper.
Turn up heat to medium-high. Cook until tomatoes are soft, stirring frequently, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add curry powder. Stir and cook for an additional minute or so. When the mixture begins to stick slightly, add wine. Cook until mixture has reduced slightly, leaving a thick sauce. Remove from heat.
Add curry mixture and potatoes to garbanzo beans. Mash potatoes and mix well. Add vinegar and additional salt and pepper to taste. Mix in bread crumbs. If mixture seems too wet, add more bread crumbs. Let cool and form into patties.
To cook, coat with bread crumbs and fry in 2 to 3 tablespoons oil on both sides, until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Serve with Mango Avocado Salsa.
