Vegetable burger (After a long hiatus)....


A new Camera....A new beginning....so much eagerness to learn.....starting the camera with a great picnic snack.

Picnics are always fun and when you have great company, the enjoyment and the fun is much more. I take special care in packing my picnic snacks because at the end of the day when you are done with all the fun, roaming around, seeing things, being in the company of good friends on a weekend....having good food with you is equally important.

I combined my knowledge to make the patty as well as from another recipe source (vah chef) to make the patty extremely tasty. I added a few extras like cashew nuts, cumin seeds, ginger garlic paste from this source.

Ingredients to make the patty:

Potatoes, Carrots, peas - boiled, cooled, mashed well
Maida - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbl spn
Coriander leaves - 1 cup chopped
Cashew nuts - 1 tbl spn (powder them coarsely)
Red chilli powder - 2 tspns
Turmeric powder - 2 tspns
Coriander Powder - 2 tspns
Bread crumbs - 2 cups (half cup to the veggie mixture and the rest to coat the patty and fry them)

For the burger:

Corn dusted kaiser rolls
Lettuce
Tomatoes sliced
Cheese slices
Onion sliced (I prefer the purple ones)
Heinz tomato ketchup
Sriracha hot chilli sauce (I love this sauce, gives it that extra bit of spicyness)
Prepared vegetable patty


To make the patty:

1. Remove all the water from the vegetables, mash them well.

2. Mix salt, bread crumbs and maida to this vegetable mixture.

3. In a small pan, take oil, add cumin seeds, cashews, ginger garlic paste, all the powders, and corainder leaves and finally combine them in to the vegetable mixture.

4. Make small balls first and then pat them to make it flat. Make a small paste of maida with water. Dip the patty in this liquid first and gently place it on bread crumbs.

5. You could deep fry them, bake them or pan fry them.

6. I like it pan fried. Keep it on medium to low flame and fry on both sides.

7. Once the patty is ready. Its comes down to assembling it. This is my favourite part. I love fresh and raw vegetables.

8. This bit is completely your imagination. The more the merrier!!!! I assembled them in the following order: on the lower half of the bun, add lettuce, tomatoes, slice of cheese, patty, onions, tomatoes, add the sauces and finally the upper half of the bun....and the burger is ready for the big bite!
