VEGETABLE BURGER

       

                  I tried makin veg patties today!! One of the best ways to eat loads of vegetables in one meal....
You can use a variety of veggies like carrots, peas, beetroot, beans potato etc. You can eat these(veg cutlets) as a snack or (patties) in the form of veg burgers.


        

INGREDIENTS
for the pattie :
 Oil
2 onions, chopped finely
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
3 potatoes, peeled and  roughly chopped
2 beetroots, peeled and roughly chopped
2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
salt
1/2 cup chopped corriander leaves
1 egg, lightly beaten for dipping
breadcrumbs


for the  burger:
burger buns
lettuce leaves
onions, cut into rings
mayonaise
mustard (optional)
chilli sauce
 pesto (optional)


 PROCESS:
for the pattie:
  • put all the vegetables in a pressure cooker with a bit of salt and cook them with very little water. (about 3 whistles)
  • After the steam in the pressure cooker has been removed, open and check if there is water. If there is water, cook the vegetables further until there is no more water (we dont want to pour out the water beacause the water is full of goodness from the veggies)
  • nicely mash the veggies with a fork.
  • keep aside
  • in a frying pan, add oil
  • fry the onions till they turn light brown
  • add the ginger garlic paste and stir
  • add the tomatoes. stir for a minute
  • add the turmeric powder, chilli powder and garam masala. stir for a few minutes. add required salt
  • add the mashed vegetables and the chopped coriander leaves. stir
  • cool the masala
  • take some veggie masala in your hand and shape them into the desired size. 
  • dip them into the egg mixture. 

  • then into the bread crumbs 
  • repeat the process for the rest of the veggie masala
  • add some oil in a pan and start shallow frying the pattie till they become golden brown
for the burger:
  • slice open your burger bun
  • to the bottom half smear some chilli sauce. add the lettuce leaf
  • place the pattie on top
  • then comes the onion ring
  • add some mayo 
  • add some pesto to the top bun and close the burger

 note:
  • you can choose your own combination of veggies
  • you can choose what goes into your burger as well like cheese and other sauces of your choice
