RECIPE – Veggie Indian Burgers

I kindly got gifted some Meatless Farm goodies the other week to make up some yummy veggie recipes. I decided to use the Meatless Farm Mince to make my own veggie burgers with an Indian Cuisine inspired twist.

A naan bread, topped with a dollop of mango chutney, spinach leaves, a curry spiced patty, grilled paneer cheese and some homemade raita. And all completely vegetarian!

SERVES 4

Ingredients

For Curry Patty:

  • 400g Meatless Farm mince
  • 1 tbsp curry powder plus extra for frying onions
  • 1 tbsp mint
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 garlic clove

For Raita:

  • 250g Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cucumber, diced
  • 2 tsps mint
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp chopped spring onion

Other Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsps rapeseed oil for frying
  • 4 mini naan breads
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 4 tbsps mango chutney
  • 1 block of paneer cheese
  • 1 bag of sweet potato fries (if not homemade)
  • 1 bunch of vine tomatoes

Recipe

  1. Fry 1/2 diced onion and 1 sliced garlic clove in 1 tbsp of rapeseed oil. Coat with 2 tsps of curry powder and fry for 5 mins.
  2. Once the onions and garlic have cooled, add to a bowl and mix gently into 400g Meatless Farm mince. Add 1 tbsp curry powder and 1 tbsp mint and mix into mince mixture.
  3. Slowly mix in 1 egg yolk to bind the mixture.
  4. Line a tray with parchment paper. Form 4 burger like shapes and place onto lined tray. Keep refrigerated for 1 hour to set the burgers.
  5. Preheat the oven for sweet potato fries to be cooked while frying the burgers, following packet instructions.
  6. Once the burgers have set, heat 1 tbsp rapeseed oil in a frying pan or grill and fry burgers for 10 – 15 mins, turning occasionally.
  7. In a separate pan, heat 1 tbsp rapeseed oil. Slice the paneer cheese and fry in pan for 5 – 10 mins or until browned, turning occasionally.
  8. Meanwhile, cook the sweet potato fries. Mine indicated 20 mins, so I put mine in the oven 5 mins before starting to cook the burgers.
  9. Roast the vine tomatoes for 15 – 20 mins in the oven during this time as well.
  10. Prepare the raita by mixing together all the raita ingredients.
  11. Heat 4 mini naan breads and place on plates, followed by 1 tbsp of mango chutney and some spinach leaves on each.
  12. Then, place the curry patties on top, with a dollop of raita.
  13. Serve with the sweet potato fries and the roasted vine tomatoes.
