The veggie burger is one of the most common burgers around, but let me tell you upfront that this recipe is not a run-of-the-mill one! it is a wonderful indo-western combo, as the tikki imbibes true indian spices while the spread uses chilli sauce and oregano to perk up the mayonnaise. Also, unlike the common burgers in which the vegetables are boiled, here we use raw vegetables sautéed to perfection. The complementary colours of the capsicum and potatoes in the salad ensure that it looks very tempting too!

Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:
Makes 4 burgers
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for a minute.
- Add all the vegetables and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 10 minutes or till the vegetables are cooked, while stirring occasionally. Sprinkle a little water to avoid the vegetables from burning.
- Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt and sauté on a medium flame for a minute.
- Add the plain flour, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- Remove from the flame, add the coriander and mix well.
- While the mixture is yet hot, mash it using a potato masher to a coarse mixture. Keep aside to cool slightly.
- Divide it into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a circle of 75 mm. (3”) diameter and 1 cm thickness.
- Dip each cutlet in the maida mixture and roll in the bread crumbs till it is evenly coated from all the sides.
- Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry each cutlet till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and mix well.
- Divide the spread into 2 equal portions and keep aside.
- Heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan, add the coloured capsicum and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
