Nowadays burgers and pizzas have become common like rice/roti. Though magazines and newspapers are show cashing the good and bad things about them, the craze on them is still unfading. In fact I can say it’s increasing. I am not an exception to this crazy crowd. I had take a oath not to have them but oh…occasionally I break my oath whenever I see delicious burgers in restaurants.

Needless to say about burgers and more, I am jumping directly into its preparation. This time I have prepared Burgers in an Indian style with the ingredients that are commonly available at every household. They came out very well and tasted like normal veggie burgers. I have added only carrots in place of vegetables and chickpeas. You are welcome to add any vegetables of your choice. Also for serving burgers, you can add cucumber, cheese, and other ingredients which you feel might add taste and style to the burgers. Just for health concern I didn’t add any cheese. Try it out, They are delicious!!!

Basic Information:
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20-30 minutes
Makes: 6 burgers


For Patties:

Chickpeas – 1 cup

Grated carrot – 1 cup

Onion – 1/4 cup, finely chopped

Ginger Garlic paste – 1 teaspoon

Green chillies – 2 no, minced

Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon

Salt – to taste

Garam masala – a pinch

Olive oil – 1 tablespoon

Breadcrumbs – 1/2 cup

All purpose flour / Maida – 2 tablespoons

For Burgers:

Burger breads – 6 nos

Tomato – 3 nos

Onion – 2 large nos

Cabbage – 1/4 cup, sliced

Pizza sauce – 6 tablespoon or as required


For Patties:

1) Soak chickpeas over night or 5-8hours in warm water. After 8 hours, wash it well.

2) Pressure cook it by adding 2 cups of water and when it done, drain the water and grind them coarsely. Make sure it is little dry. Keep it aside.

3) Take a pan and heat oil in it. When it is hot, add ginger garlic and minced green chilli. Stir for few seconds.

4) Add onions and saute them till they are soft and transparent.

5) Add grated carrot(or any vegetable of your choice) and stir it to cook without adding water.

6) When the carrots get cooked well, add ground chickpeas. Give a quick stir.

7) Add Garam masala, turmeric powder and salt.

8) Continue stirring till it turns into a kind of dough like substance. At this stage remove it from heat and allow it to cool down.

9) Divide the dough generously into 6 balls and make patties with the thickness of 1 cm as we prepare for cutlets. Keep them aside.

10) Add little water to All Purpose flour and make a watery batter. In another wide plate take bread crumbs.

11) Dip the patty first into batter and then into bread crumbs. Place the breadcrumbs coated patty in a baking tray.

12) Repeat the step for other patties. Slightly coat the patties with oil.

13) Bake them for 30 minutes or until they turn golden brown in colour in a 250C preheated oven.

14) You can also shallow fry them in a skillet as we do for cutlets. I shallow fried 3 and baked 3 patties.

15) Once baked/shallow fried, cool them slightly so that they can be served with burgers.

For Burgers:

1) Take burger buns and coat the inner side with pizza sauce / tomato ketchup.

2) Place the cabbage slices just beneath these buns.

3) Place a patty followed by one slice of tomato and 2 slices of onions.

4) On the top, place the other slice of the burger bun.

5) Have a big bite and enjoy.
