These sumptuous Healthy Burgers offer an exciting way to stay off high-fat junk foods! Loaded with veggies, this healthful delicacy is also as tasty as it looks, thanks to interesting flavourers like low-cal mayonnaise and green chilli paste. But, if you are wondering how the burger suddenly became healthy, check out how we have tava roasted instead of deep-frying the cutlets, and used fibre-rich whole wheat burger buns instead of starchy plain flour ones. Interestingly, the cheese is also missing, but you will not miss it! But remember this is an occasional one dish treat and best restricted to 1 burger at meal time.
