Veg Burger Combo - Yummy Potato and Bean Burgers
The very popular Veg Burger is dish that's goes down so easily with fries and sauces, while what we add into the burgers can vary depending on your preference or mood. Of course, the patties themselves can be altered as per your preference, and I have gone with potatoes which are quite traditional for these sort of burgers for the first part of my recipe/s. For the second part, I have used beans for my patties which come out great and are kinda different, and certainly quite flavorful.
And as I mentioned above, what we add with the patties can vary - I have used onion and tomato slices, and lettuce leaves, but options can spread over to cheese and cucumber slices ,and for sauce, mayo is used widely and that's a great add, while you could try also try tartar sauce.
So, here's the recipe for these wonderful burgers.
- 4 pairs of buns
- 250 gms potato
- 2 medium size onion
- 1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
- 1 sprig of spring onion
- 1/2 tsp each of coriander and cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp amchur powder (dry mango powder)
- 2 tbsp coriander leaves (chopped)
- 1/2 cup cornflour
- 1 cup of breadcrumbs
- Salt (according to taste)
- 1 green chilli (finely cut)
- 1/4 tsp chilli powder
- 1/2 lemon
- 2 onion (cut in slices)
- 2 tomatoes (cut in slices)
1. Boil the potatoes in a pressure cooker up until 3 minutes after the pressure comes. When it cools, peel and mash them.
2. Cut the onions and the green part of the spring onion finely.
3. Mix the onions, salt, chilli, amchur, coriander and cumin powder, juice of half a lemon, ginger and garlic paste and coriander leaves, properly. This is our potato mixture.
4. Mix the cornflour into 3/4 cup of water and add a little salt to it.
5. Make the balls of the potato mixture, press it between your palms to get a patty shape. Keep all your patties ready this way.
Instructions for cooking
1. Heat oil for shallow frying in a pan.
2. Dip each patty in the cornflour mixture, then roll it in breadcrumbs (make sure all sides get evenly coated), and then, on a slow flame, fry it in your pan - you can batch fry 2 or 3 at a time. Fry them evenly till they're well done. Do this for all your patties and they'll thus be ready.
3. Cut each bun from the mid section all the way.
4. Place an onion slice on your bun and keep the potato patty over it. Then, place a tomato slice over the patty and close the burger with the other bun. Do this for all your burgers.
5. Your yummy Veg Burgers (with potato patties) are ready - the image at the top shows the burgers served with some crunchy and delicious, tangy Nacho chips (corn chips - Doritos are best for that).
Here's a variation for your patty where we use french beans instead of just the potatoes.
Veg Burger (with bean patty):
1. Boil 150 gms french beans and 100 gms of potatoes together in a cooker for 3 minutes after the pressure comes.
2. Mash the potatoes with a masher, and blend the beans in a blender. Mix both homogeneously, and add everything we add for the potato patty mixture in the Preparation (Step 3).
3. Then, follow the rest of the Preparation and Instructions until Step 4 of the Instructions above, where you can skip the onion and tomato slices and go with lettuce leaves. Of course, this part is up to you.
4. Your tasty Veg Burgers (with bean patties) are ready (check out the image for it below). Serve it with fries and salad, or whichever you like best.
As much as I love chicken burgers and fish fillets, I have delved into and have been bowled over by these Veg Burgers, so much so that I really wanted to share it you all. While it's natural to use potato patties in the burgers, bean patties make this dish so different and just so flavorful. You may also grill them (instead of shallow frying as I've done with the recipe/s above) and come out with grilled veg burgers - it comes out just so yummy.
So, do give it a try, and enjoy.
