Carry the flavours of India to your next burger picnic. The kick of roasted flavors these homemade burgers; decorating with cucumbers, tomatoes topped with a creamy slaw truly makes a beautiful and delicious differentiation.

These delicious and juicy burgers are cooked in a skillet and are perfect for an easy weeknight meal. Packed full of flavor, these pattie burgers are quick to make and will be a hit with the whole family! 

If you have been making burger then you definitely need to replace all your burger with this one! Because, this is the BEST HOMEMADE BURGER you will ever make.

I have divided the RECIPE into whole three parts.

Why Aloo Pattie?

These cute little (or large) nuggets of fried goodness are bursting with flavor. Ginger, cilantro, garam masala and cumin give a spicy punch to the potato and pea “dough”. And while they took a little bit of prep time (peeling, boiling, and mashing the potatoes) the taste was well worth the effort.
Here, I used mashed potatoes and flattened rice (poha) in a certain ration with grated carrot to add a healthy version to my pattie. Usually this pattie, covered with bread crumbs are deep fried into oil. But instead of frying, I chose to cook on skillet with minimum oil.

HOMEMADE SPREAD? yeah, why not?

While I hardly ever eat them, I love veggie burger every now and then, and I’m pretty sure it’s because of that oh-so-fabulous burger sauce that is slathered on them. My family is a big-time burgers and fries fan.
Over the last few years, I’ve noticed that most nice restaurants and cafes have their own “special sauce” that they use on burgers. So when I made burgers on weekends for enjoying a whole lot meal, you better believe I was going to whip up a batch of homemade burger sauce!

There’s a 98% chance you already have all of the ingredients you need sitting in your refrigerator and pantry. Only six ingredients, one small bowl and a whisk is all you need to get this ready.
It’s the perfect complement to any burger, and I even love using it to dip my fries!

PREPARING VEGGIES

Keep these burgers on hand for quick, healthy meals. Leftover cooked patties store well in the freezer and handful of homemade spread. what else will you require?
