The veg burger that I had posted earlier was a cheat one with veggies sauteed and piled on to the burger. It was just to get the children to eat their veggies.. Here is the regular one with vegetable Pattie, lettuce, tomato and onions. The Pattie is made in a simple and easy way. No corn flour slurry, no dipping in bread crumbs. You may use any number of vegetables of your choice. Children and adults will both enjoy it.
5 Burger buns sliced into half
2 large potatoes pressure cooked
1 carrot grated
15 French beans chopped fine
1 medium sized onion chopped fine
1 inch piece of ginger
7 cloves of garlic
2 green chillies
1 tsp Kashmiri chilly powder
4 slices of bread
Rava/ semolina to coat the patties
Oil to fry
5 Cheese singles
Tomato sliced thinly
Onion sliced thinly
Peel the cooked potatoes and grate them. Steam cook the beans and carrot. Make a paste of the green chillies, garlic and ginger. Heat oil in a pan and drop in the onions. Allow them to turn translucent. Drop in the ginger, garlic and green chilly paste. Roast till the raw smell disappears and then add the steamed veggies and salt. Mash with a masher and then add the potatoes. Mix and heat thoroughly. Wet the slices of bread, squeeze out well and add them to the mixture. Continue mixing till it leaves the sides of the pan. Tip it into a bowl. Cover and keep aside to cool. After it has cooled refrigerate the mixture for around half an hour. Pinch five equal sized balls of the mixture and pat it into the shape of a Pattie. Dust with semolina and deep fry in medium hot oil till it turns golden yellow and crisp. Do remember the Pattie continues to cook even after being removed from the hot oil so it is absolutely essential to see that it is removed from the oil once it turns a deep golden yellow.
Apply butter on the inside of the two slices of the bun. Gently roast it till it turns a golden brown. Spread Mayonnaise and sprinkle with pepper. Place a lettuce and top it with a slice of cheese, slices of tomato and onion. Drizzle with tomato ketchup. Place the Pattie and the other half of the burger bun. Serve with more mayonnaise and ketchup as required.
