6 burger buns
6 tsp melted butter for brushing

For The Vegetable Cutlets
1 1/2 cups chopped and boiled mixed vegetables (french beans , carrots and green peas)
1 cup boiled and mashed potatoes
1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp cornflour
salt to taste
cornflour for rolling
oil for deep-frying

To Be Mixed Into A Coleslaw
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup mayonnaise

To Be Mixed Into A Spread
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp tomato ketchup

Other Ingredients
6 lettuce leaves
6 cheese slices
18 cucumber slices
18 tomatoes slices
12 sliced onions
salt and freshly ground black pepper (kalimirch) for sprinkling

For the vegetable cutlets

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and mash lightly.
  2. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and roll each portion into a 75 mm. (3”) diameter round cutlet.
  3. Roll the cutlets in cornflour till they are evenly coated from all the sides.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry, 2 cutlets at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Divide the coleslaw into 6 equal portions and keep aside.
  2. Cut each burger bun horizontally into two. Apply ½ tsp of butter on the insides of each half of the burger bun and toast them lightly on a tava (griddle).
  3. Apply a little spread on the buttered side of all the bun halves.
  4. Place a lower halve of the burger bun on a clean, dry surface with the buttered-spread side facing upwards.
  5. Place 1 lettuce leaf, a cutlet and 1 cheese slice over it.
  6. Now place a portion of the coleslaw over it, finally place 3 cucumber slices, 3 tomato slices, 2 onion slices and sprinkle a little salt and pepper evenly over it.
  7. Cover it with the upper halve of the burger bun with the buttered-spread side facing downwards and press it lightly.
  8. Repeat steps 3 to 7 to make 5 more burgers.
  9. Serve immediately.

1 big fat burger and you are done. It is so big and yummy. You cannot just stop. The coleslaw and cheese together add awesome creamy cheesy taste to the burger along with the vegetable cutlet. Cutlet is made with basic spices yet it is so full of taste.. Trust me you should not miss this one..
