Vegetable Burger with Yellow peas

There are very few recipes that taste good and do good, vegetable burger is one among them. I always love making veggie burger patties before and refrigerate them, because they make my work simple for the next day lunch box. Yellow peas are readily available in marked in tins, but I prefer soaking the dry peas myself and preparing them for making patties. This is the first time I tried to make a burger with yellow peas, always I used to make with chick peas. Believe me they tasted wonderful.




Ingredients
Yellow peas-dry-100 grams
Soft boiled small potato mashed
Lemon juice 1/2 tbsp
oil 6 tbsp
walnuts-hand full
onion-1/2cup
cilantro-1/4cup chopped
cumin powder-1/2tbsp
coriander powder-1/2tbsp
green chili t taste
turmeric-pinch
cumin seeds few
ginger garlic paste to taste

Method
Soak dry yellow peas for at least 8 hrs and pressure cook them for 3 whistles (or until soft). Let the pressure in the cooker come down then in the mixi jar take all the above mentioned ingredients along with peas and grind them coarsely. Now in a pan heat 2tbsp of oil and add few cumin seeds and allow them to splatter and immediately add ginger-garlic paste and cook under medium flame till the raw smell disappears. Finally add the ground mixture, lemon juice and turmeric and mix well. 

After 10 min of frying under low flame, take this mixture in to separate bowl and allow it to cool. Finally divide the mixture in to 4 equal parts and flatten them in to Patti shape with your hand. Grill them on both sides with sufficient oil. Now the patties are ready and when they cool down to room temperature place them in zip lock bags and freeze them. you can use them for one week if you perfectly freeze them. when you are about to use take them out from freezer 30 min before you serve and microwave them fro 20 sec. Now, place them in the bun with your favorite toppings and dressings. Hope you like my recipe.

Tip: Kindly note it please, these burgers are very tender, they break easily since there is a very little binding, if you do not mind having egg then I recommend you to add one egg along with onions and carrots and mix well. Egg acts as a super binding agent and also adds moisture and great texture to your patties. If you do not like adding egg then add more wheat flour, if your patties are tender.
