Explore the delights of international cuisines with this wonderful Lebanese burger recipe that features kabuli chana cutlet, and is served with tabbouleh.
The bread slice, although used only meagrely is very important to bind the cutlet, while the garlic and mint leaves make these cutlets very flavourful.
What is more, the falafel burger features a tasty and colourful vegetable spread, which adds crunch to every mouthful.
