Veggie Burger (No potato patty)


  • 10 burger buns
  • 10 cheese slices (optional)
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • Bread crumbs for coating patty
  • Oil for brushing patty
  • 1 tbsp. butter (for buns)

For caramelised onions

  • 4 big onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • A pinch of salt

For sauce

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. red chili sauce
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

For the patty

  • 2.5 cups cooked green gram
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. coriander powder
  • 2 tsp. red chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp. garlic ginger chili paste/chopped
  • 1 tbsp. chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tsp. salt (or as per taste)
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice


Caramelised Onions – In a pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and cook the over high heat for five minutes or until they turn soft. Turn the heat to medium low and cook for another 15 – 20 minutes. Keep scraping from the sides and the bottom of the pan if they stick and turn the heat a little lower.  You may add a splash of water to it if they stick too much to the bottom of the pan. Turn off the heat as soon as they are dark brown in color and let it cool.

Sauce – Mix mayo, red chili sauce and lemon juice and the sauce is ready.

Patty – In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the patty. Mash the rice and lentil while you mix to form dough like consistency. Divide it into 10 equal parts and form patties. Heat a flat pan and lightly brush it with oil. Coat the patties with bread crumbs and cook them on the pan for around 5 minutes each side over medium heat. Keep them aside.

Making the burgers – On the same pan, warm the burger buns with a little butter (you may brown them as per your liking). Now, assemble – lather the bottom burger slice with chili mayo sauce and place the patty over it. Add some caramelised onions, sliced tomatoes and a cheese slice and cover with the top slice of the patty. As soon as the cheese melts, serve!
