A Fun Burger workshop…..three different ways!
Hubby likes Deep fried,
I like Pan fried,
Mom likes Indian style! What’s your pick?
Vegetarian burgers…..recipe for burger patties from mom.
Soak Kala chana overnight. Pressure cook with salt till soft. Grind to a smooth paste and combine with equal quantity of mashed potato.
Add finely chopped onions, minced ginger & garlic, finely chopped green chillies and cilantro.
Add salt, red chilli pwdr, dhania pwdr, smchoor and garam masala as per your taste.
Check consistancy of mix, it should not be too loose. If required add more bed crumbs.
Form into big round patties and deep fry/pan fry…one at a time!
Do not over crowd your frying pan, these cutlets crumble and break easily. So do exercise caution while frying them.
PS: Mom’s style: skip coleslaw….serve toasted buns layered with patties, spicy green chutney and pyaz!!
For low fat mustard coleslaw
Add a sprinkling of salt to shredded cabbage, grated carrot and finely chopped celery (optional)
After 20 minutes squeeze vegetables to extract away as much water as you can.
Now add Greek/hung yoghurt, a little mayo/cream, mustard, vinegar, a touch of sugar, salt & pepper to taste.
Mix nicely, taste and adjust seasoning as.per your taste….Serve chilled.
