Veggie Burger

Happy Pongal/Sankranti to you all!Today being a week day, there was nothing fancy in my kitchen- I made some Shrikhand (which already went into my pile of drafts and will be soon on my blog) and Payasam with rice and jaggery.
It is very hard to find a good veggie burger here in the States.The only burger I can eat is the BK Veggie Burger with Morningstar farms patty but I stopped that too now.I am sure I would have collected extra, extra pounds on me.So I have decided to make it at home.The Garam Masala gives that an Indian touch!
Adapted from all over the internet

Patty:

3 Medium Red Potatoes, Scrubbed, boiled and mashed
1 Yellow Medium Onion, chopped
1/2 cup mixed veggies;I have used frozen veggies, so I steamed them a bit.If you are using fresh veggies, boil them and drain the water.
1 tsp chopped coriander
1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs (I used Whole wheat bread to make crumbs;But you could use white or buy the store bought one too)
1 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp Red chilli powder (optional)
4 tbsps Olive Oil

Burger

Hamburger Buns
Romaine Lettuce
1 Red Onion, Sliced thin
1 Tomato, thinly sliced
1 tbsp Light Mayo or Regular Mayo
1/2 tsp Ranch dressing (Optional)
Toothpicks to secure them (Optional)

For the patty
  • Combine mashed potatoes,onions, veggies, coriander, Garam Masala and chilli powder
  • Make into balls, the size of your fist and flatten them slightly
  • Heat 4 tbsps olive oil and shallow fry them until brown
Assembling
  • Take a bun and slice it into 2 halves
  • Place the patty and drizzle with Mayo and ranch dressing
  • Put a couple of leaves of Romaine, Onions and Tomatoes
  • Secure with a toothpick.
  • Take a BIG, BIG bite!
  • Now is that easy or what?

For now,
Shri

In response, to your comment on my blog, yes you can add other veggies like grated cauliflower, or spinach or carrots. Never anything bitter... Arhar and toor are same I think. But you can also try with with other dals.

You have a smart way to sneak in some veggies into this burger...
