Burger Thats Less Guilty

Everyone has a food they often crave for, be it junk or healthy most often junk... that food for me is BURGER... I just love a good burger... I still remember when I was growing up every time I would see a street vendor selling burgers I would go weak in the knee and would want to have it... I remember what a joyful day it was when McD opened in Delhi.

Sadly I avoid all junk food these days (atleast try and avoid) and hence burger consumption has gone down sadly the cravings haven't, so now I make my own burgers at home patty not fried... no mayo and cheese used so makes me feel less guilty about the whole thing.

Add in a little oats and veggies to the patty and take a whole wheat bun, use hung curd instead of mayo and the burger actually turns into healthy food from junk ;-)

    Tomatoes and cucumber if u want
    Burger buns

    Steps

    1. Hang curd in a muslin cloth for atleast an hour so that the whey drains out. Keep aside till needed.
    2. For the patty - roast the oats in a heavy bottom pan on medium heat till light brown in color, cool and give it a stir in the mixer to get a coarse powder.
    3. Mix all the patty ingredients together well and make rounds (any other  shape u desire) and keep aside.
    4. Heat one tsp of olive oil in a non stick pan and shallow fry the patty one by one on both sides.
    5. Take the hung curd and add the mustard powder, dried herbs, salt and cabbage to it and mix well.
    6. Cut the burger bun into two parts and a heat slightly on a pan. Add some tomato sauce or chilly sauce whichever u can handle or prefer. Place some onions on it. Put a spoon full of hung curd mixture on it and now keep the patty on top of it. Top it with another onion and/or any other vegetable u wish to.
    7. Keep the other half of the bun on top and dig in what are u waiting for ;-)
