No fuss Burger

"I am leaving in 10 mins". Baba wait you cannot leave without breakfast. "But you are still in bed". "It will take just 10 mins for me to make you something" said me.

In a hurry I scrambled out of bed. Got fresh and got into the kitchen. I had Burger buns and tomatoes, potatoes and onions. I remembered I had some kasuri methi. Well that could make a good burger. So here is what I did.


2 burger buns
1 teaspoon butter

For the patties:
4 raw potatoes
1 tablespoon Kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
2 green chilies chopped
1 handful cilantro
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon corn flour
salt to taste
Oil to fry

for the salad
2 tomatoes sliced
1 onion sliced

To make the patties. Wash and clean the potatoes. Grate them and add Kasuri methi, green chilies, cilantro, cumin, corn flour and salt. Mash together. Shape into 2 patties and shallow fry on a gridle till golden and crisp.

Slice the burger buns at the equator. While the gridle in hot add the butter and watch it sizzle. Tcch..Tchh silly put the burger buns on it and roast a bit on both sides. This will make the burgers really inviting.

Assemble the burger by laying the patties on the inside of the lower hemisphere. Layer the sliced tomatoes and onions. Add a dash of salt and red chilli powder. Cover with the northern hemisphere. Its ready to be gobbled up with what? Ketchup of course!

Main bhi Khush! Baba be Khush!
