This was is probably one of the nicest homemade burgers I have had since being a non-meat eater! I love burgers and I love Indian food so combining the two was a no brainer for me!
These delicious and easy to make burgers came to a bargain price of 55pence including the side orders and by now you must know how much I bloody love a bargain!!
All you need is:
1 x carrot
1 x red onion
2 x spring onions
Plain flour – 3 tbl spoons
Water – 4 tbl spoons
This recipe is so simple you could even let the children make it!!!
All you need to do is pre chop your carrot into very thin slices or if you’re feeling lazy get some pre grated carrot from the supermarket, bear in mind though this will heavily increase the price of the dish.
Then you need to also slice your red onion and carefully slice your spring onions lengthways. Once all the veggies are sliced and chopped whack them all in a bowl. Give the bowl a good shake to evenly mix the veg around then you want to chuck a teaspoon or two (depending how currylicious you want your burgers) of curry powder into the mixture of veggies and then also your plain flour and water. Give it a good mix – you may get the urge to use your hands for this, I did! If you need to add more water or flour to get the right consistency then please do, remember though that it shouldn’t be too thick and shouldn’t be covering the veggies too much, only enough to give them a crisp up in the oil as you are not completely battering them.
Once your mixture is ready use a moulding ring or if like me you do not own one use a ramakin to shape up your burger patty’s. mine did feel like it was going to fall apart as soon as I took it out of the ramekin but as soon as we put it in for cooking it was fine.
Once your patty’s are made up you will then want to shallow fry them on a high heat ensuring you flip them until they are golden and crispy!
We served ours with a side salad and some homemade wedges! We bought some vegan friendly burger buns and inside the burger placed baby gem lettuce and mango chutney just to give it that extra Indian taste!
These were a winner for us and for that price and cooking simplicity we will be making again!
