Vegetable Kidney Bean Burger

Typically for a burger, we need a protein filler, a few veggies, sauces for flavoring, right? Here is a fast and easy way to make a burger without specifically making a Veggie Patty.

The basic idea is to have a protein mixed with cooked veggies to make a stiff dough of the mixture. Just apply it on one side of the bun and cook it on the griddle and assemble!! 

My older one has taken a liking to this form of burger as well. So check these out for Day 2 Week 3 of BM #37.

Vegetable Kidney Bean Burger

Ingredients - 

Burger Buns as needed
Lettuce, Onion and Tomato to layer within the burger
Mixed Vegetables, boiled 1 1/2 cups 
Kidney Beans, boiled and drained 3/4 cup (Or Garbanzo Beans)
Salt, Red Chilli Powder to taste
Chaat Masala, Garam Masala, Pav Bhaji Masala, Chole Masala (add whatever suits your palate)

*Feel free to add any other dressing like Mayo, Mustard, Vinegar etc.
*I tried adding in some crushed paneer as well. Experiment with ingredients to suit your kids.

Vegetable Kidney Bean Burger

Method Of Preparation -

Lightly mash the cooked kidney beans(Rajma), mix in the mashed mixed veggies.

Add the masalas, and other flavors as needed and make it into a stiff dough. (Shhh...On one occasion I had mixed in some crumbled paneer to boost up the protein content).

On one side of the bun apply a thick coating of the protein paste made above.

Heat a griddle, spray some oil if needed.

Gently, place the spread side down on the hot griddle and let it cook on a medium flame. After 2-3 minutes, the cooked side will be crisp and brown. Remove and continue to make more as needed.

Now to assemble the burger go with your preferred veggies and seasonings. For my older one, I served with onions, tomatoes and lettuce. Also some mustard and ketchup and topped it with the other half of the bun.
