2 tsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)

Other Ingredients
6 burger buns
6 tbsp grated processed cheese
18 onion rings

Method
For the bhaji

  1. Heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan, add the onions and capsicum and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the chilli-garlic paste and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  3. Add the tomatoes and 2 tbsp of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder, pav bhaji masala and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

  6. Add the coriander and mix well.
  7. Divide it into 6 equal portions and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Cut each burger bun horizontally into two. Apply a little butter on the insides of each half of the burger bun.
  2. Place the lower half of a bun on a clean, dry surface with the buttered side facing upwards and spread one portion of the bhaji. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of cheese and place 3 onion rings over it.
  3. Place the upper half of the bun over it with the buttered side facing downwards and press it lightly.
  4. Brush some more butter again on the top of the bun and keep aside.
  5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 to make 1 more burger.
  6. Grease the sandwich griller with a little butter and allow it to heat up.
  7. Place both the burgers in the griller and grill for 3 to 4 minutes or till they turn crisp and brown in colour.
  8. Repeat steps 2 to 7 to make 4 more burgers in 2 more batches.
  9. Serve immediately.

Handy tip:

  1. To make 2 tbsp of the chilli-garlic paste, soak 2 whole dry kashmiri red chillies in enough warm water for 15 minutes. Drain well, combine them with 2 garlic cloves in a mixer and blend using little water to a smooth paste.

A wonderful twist to the regular burgers we have. The spice powders in the bhaji are just perfect! The veggies in the bhaji gives a light but great mouthfeel. Bhaji when topped with cheese and grilled definately enhances the taste. Cooking on tava might be fine but i dont think it might give that amazing taste which is given by the grilling method. I made this burger and trust me not only me but my family loved it too!
