Today I'm going to post a universally acknowledged snack which has captured the taste of the entire world. It's nothing but Burger :-). I' presenting Veg burger as a tribute to the environment day, celebrated last week worldwide. However the look of the burger is slightly funny ; I have given it the shape of a Porcupine.
Serves: 4, Preparation time: 30 minutes
For the Burger: 4 Buns
For the Patties:
3 Potatoes (boiled & mashed)
1/2 cup Green peas
2 tbsp Corn flour
1 tsp Ginger (grated)
1 Carrot (grated)
11/2 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
Oil for frying
Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt to taste
2 slices Cucumber
1 tsp Hazelnut spread
1/2 cut Cherry
4 Cheese slices
Lettuce leaves few
1 tsp Black pepper
4 Tomato slices (in thin rings)
4 Onion slices (in thin rings)
3 tbsp Tomato sauce
!/4 Carrot (for spikes)
Mix boiled potato, carrot, peas and salt in a bowl. Heat oil in a pan and add green chilli, ginger and cumin powder. Stir for a minute and add the above mixture in the pan. Cook uncovered for 2-3 minutes and then turn off the flame. After it cools down, make 4 equal balls of the mixture and give it a pattie shape. Now in a small bowl mix corn flour with little water and make a thin batter for binding. Dip the pattie in the liquid mixture and then roll it on bread crumbs. Heat oil in a non stick pan and shallow fry the pattie until it is crisp and light brown.
Slit the burger bun through the middle. Spread tomato sauce (on the lower bun), place a lettuce leave, then place a cheese slice. Place the pattie, onion slice and tomato slice, sprinkle some salt and black pepper.
Finally place the top bun slice on this and press down gently. You can also use a toothpick inserted through the center to bind it together (I didn't need that). Enjoy this delicious burger with fresh juice or chips to have a perfect little meal for you.
Decoration: Cut the cheese slice in tongue shape and place it beneath the pattie, insert the carrot spikes on top of the bun, place the half cut cherry as nose and two cucumbers on either side of the cherry and use hazelnut spread as eyeballs
