Veggie burger


Burger is one of the common favorites.  It can be made with lentils, sweet potato, quinoa and other such vegetables that can be mashed. To create delicious burgers one should choose the right combination of pulses, vegetables and masala.

For this recipe, I chose some easily available ingredients. I had some boiled black-eyed beans and had heard about using them in burgers so I added them to the recipe. I wanted to make burger crispy but avoid deep fry so I used a little corn flour apart from bread crumbs while rolling the patty. It really made a difference in crispness of the burger. I used oats powder for binding instead of all-purpose flour (maida). You can add the usual burger dressing like lettuce, onion slices etc. Hope you enjoy.
