BEST VEGGIE BURGER EVER • I made this Indian veggie burger last night and let me tell you, it is life changing 🔥
I used a Jamie Oliver recipe and only made a few changes.
2 red onions
200 g butternut squash
100 g hallumi cheese (optional, leave it out and the burger is vegan)
2 cloves of garlic
5 cm piece of ginger
2 fresh chillies
1 big bunch of fresh coriander , (60g)
150 g gram flour
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
2 teaspoons ground cumin
100 ml natural soy yoghurt (I used @ )
Start by preheating the oven.
Peel and finely slice the onions and place into a large mixing bowl. Scrub the carrot and squash, then coarsely grate into the bowl, along with the paneer. Peel the garlic and ginger and finely grate it into the bowl. Finely chop the chillies (deseed if you like) and half the coriander (stalks and all) and add to the mix.
Tip in the flour, turmeric and cumin, season with sea salt and black pepper, then squeeze in the juice of 1 lime. Add 100ml of water, then get in there with clean hands and give it a good mix up. Divide into 6, then shape and squash into 3cm-thick patties.
Drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil into a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat, add the patties and fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and crisp – you may need to work in batches. Remove to a baking tray and pop in the oven for 10 minutes, or until cooked through.
For the coriander yoghurt, pick the remaining coriander leaves into a pestle and mortar, setting aside a handful for garnish. Add a pinch of salt, then bash to a paste. Squeeze in the juice of half the remaining lime, then stir in the yoghurt.
Serve the burger up with a layer of the yogurt, the patty and some mango chutney 😍
