Veggie Burger

Making burger is my long time wish and finally I have done. My hubby likes the MC Donald’s burger, as I am a vegetarian I go with cheese and lettuce without chicken patties which I cannot satisfy my taste buds. So I just look at the stuff used in chicken burger and I make my own veggie burger at home, in my style. This is my second attempt which is very easy to make and fit for weekend breakfast.

For the Patties:
Cooked Vegetables – 1/2 cup (I used carrot, beans, peas, cauliflower, capsicum)
Potato – 1 big
Sweet corn kernels – 1tbsp
Onion – 1medium
Green chilli – 1no (chopped finely)
Ginger&Garlic paste -1/4tsp
Garam masala powder – 1/4tsp
Chilli powder- 1/ 4tsp
Bread crumbs – 2tbsp
Lemon juice – 1tsp
Coriander leaves few
Salt to taste
Oil -2tsp

To make Patties:
  • Chop the vegetables into small pieces and pressure cook for 2 to 3 whistles and smash well.
  • Mash the boiled potato. Chop the onion.
  • Heat oil in a pan add green chillies, add onion sauté well follow by the ginger & garlic paste and fry until the raw smell leaves.

  • Now add the cooked vegetables, mashed potato and add chilli powder, salt, garam masala powder, coriander leaves.

  • Fry the mix for few minute until the mix does not stick to the pan. Switch off the flame.
  • Allow to mix to cool to room temperature. Now add lemon juice, bread crumbs and mix well.

  • Now make round shaped patties. Cook on hot tawa to golden brown crisp on both sides using less oil.

  • You can deep fry the patties in oil too or grill it using oven.
  • I used the veggies available in my pantries, can use veggie of your choice.
  • You get four large patties for the given measure of ingredients.
For Filling:
Burger Buns – 4 no
Cheese slice - 2
Onion – 1 no
Tomato -1 no
Lettuce – few
Mayonnaise – 2 tbsp
Honey Mustard sauce
Tomato ketchup

To assemble:
  • Chop the onion and tomato into thin roundels.
  • Cut the burger bun into half and spread mayonnaise evenly on one side on both.

  • Place lettuce leaves and veggie patties on top of it and spread some honey mustard sauce.

  • Next place onions and tomatoes on top.Cover with another half bun and grill for 5 minutes.

Serve immediately with tomato ketchup and a drink of your choice.

  • Replace cabbage instead of using lettuce leaves.
  • Can use any sauce spread on burger buns per your taste.
  • Finally grilling part is optional, it helps to get crispy bottom.
  • Choose your choice of stuffing to enjoy the bite.
