Veg Burger

I was clean bowled by her pictures & step-by-step procedure. I went to NTUC & bought all the things required to prepare the burger. Thanks a lot Nags for inspiring me to prepare veg burger.
I modified her patty recipe to suit our taste. Also, I used iceberg lettuce instead of the baby greens. Rest of the procedure remains same.

I offered this to my maid. She was tasting this for the first time. She struggled to bite the burger. The lettuce & onions started peeping out. She kept the vegetables aside. Just ate the bun + patty, later ate her greens :) I asked whether she liked the burger. Her answer was "this burger tastes good, but cannot be eaten outside". Me & my hubby laughed for 5 mins at her sincere & innocent answer. Ha ha...

Ingredients for the patty(This makes around 8 patties)
Potatoes: 4 medium sized (boiled)
Cottage cheese: 3 tbsp (grated)
Carrot: 1 medium sized (grated)
Green peas: 1 fistful (boiled)
Garam Masala: 1 tsp
Chat masala: 1 tsp
Red chilli powder: 1 tsp
Lemon juice: 1 tsp
Corn flour: 1 tbsp
Bread: 2 slices (Used whole wheat bread)
Salt: According to taste
Oil : 1-1.5 tbsp for each patty
Ingredients for burger(For 8 burgers)
Ham burger buns : 8
Iceberg lettuce: 8 big leaves
Tomato Sauce : 1 tsp for each burger (Use any spread/dressing of your choice)
Onion: 2 slices for each burger
Tomato: 1-2 slices for each burger
Cheese: 8 slices ( One for each burger)

Patty preparation:
Mash the potatoes ensuring no lumps are left. Add all the ingredients mentioned (except bread). Soak the bread in water for 5 secs. Squeeze out the water from the bread. Mash the bread & then add it to the mixture. Mix them thoroughly. Prepare 8 equal sized balls (around the size of a ping pong ball). Pat them gently. Heat the oil on a griddle/tawa. When oil is hot, place the patties & shallow fry them on a medium/slow heat for 5 minutes on each side. Remove the patties from the griddle.
Assembling the burger:
Cut the burger bun (There would be an indication in the burger bun itself. Use this to slice the burger bun). Tear the lettuce leaf & place them on the lower portion of the burger bun.
Place the cheese slice above the lettuce. Now, place the hot patty over the cheese.
Smear some sauce/spread over the patty. Place the slices of onion & tomato over the patty. Finally close the other slice of bun over the slices of tomato & onion & enjoy!!

  • Place a relatively hot patty over the cheese slice as it helps to melt the cheese a little. This adds an extra zing to the burger.
  • Donot skip the usage of iceberg lettuce. The crunchiness of iceberg lettuce takes the burger to another level.
