Vegetarian Burgers

Ingredients for the burger patty :

  • 1 can Chick peas/ Garbanzo beans/ Boiled chana ( one can is of 450 gms, the drained weight is 250 gms. So if you are boiling chick peas at home, the net weight without any water post boiling should be around 250 grams)
  • 2 bread slices
  • 2 boiled potatoes small
  • 1 tspn each of cumin seeds , dry roasted and ground
  • Salt , sugar, pepper to taste.
  • Dried mango powder ( aamchur)  or lemon juice to taste
  • Chopped coriander leaves
  • White sesame seeds

1. Take a can of chick peas (or boil chana), mash it up with 2 breads, 2 boiled potatoes, 1 tspn each of roasted jeera powder, sugar, pepper each, sugar optional ( that's a Bong touch) , aamchur/ lemon juice and salt to taste, chopped coriander leaves. 

2. Prepare patties of the mixture.  Sprinkle sesame seeds on a plate  press either side of the patty on sesame seeds .

3. Heat a flat pan/ tawa.  Add a little oil and fry either side of the patty.  If you like it  deep fried in lots of oil, you may do so too. 

4. Prepare a spread of mayonnaise , wasabi ( optional, u may add mustard) , grated carrot and cucumber.

5. Slice a fresh soft bun. Apply the spread , patty, cheese slice , lettuce pieces. I skipped the cheese. 

 Had some strawberries in the freezer, used it to make a yogurt strawberry smoothie to serve it along the burgers...

Manjula's kitchen is a treasure trove of very doable vegetarian recipes. I first came across her site in search of a recipe to make rosogulla which incidentally was a  great success. I found tinned rossogullas thereafter .. ;)...  Her site is my regular hunting ground when I am in search of vegetarian recipes,  particularly recipes  which do not use onion garlic / Jain recipes as they are popularly called in India.   You may have noted that this recipe too does not have onion and garlic. The link to the original recipe on her site from where I have taken this recipe is attached herewith

 .. Have a great weekend all!!
