Vegan Patties

I usually stock all the ingredients needed for a veggie sandwich and it is an usual breakfast menu when I am in North America. But a good burger eluded me since I did not know how to make a veggie patty.

I recollected the ingredients of an instant patty mix, I used a year and half back and tried to recollect it.

The result is what you see in the picture. Luckily, the result came out very well.

(makes 4 patties)

Potatoes (finely minced / grated) - 1
Broccoli - (finely minced) - 4-5 florets
Carrot - (grated) - 1
Green peas - 1/4 cup

Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Maida / wheat flour - 1/2 cup

Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Margarine / butter / oil for roasting.


Heat a tablespoon margarine / butter / oil in a wide skillet. Fry the green peas for a minute, add the vegetables and roast them on a heat for 2 minutes. Sprinkle a little water and keep the skillet covered till the vegetables become tender.

Transfer the above mix to a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt and chilli powder. Add little water and make into a thick dough.

Make 4 equally sized balls and pat into about 4-5 cm diameter and 1/2 cm thick patties.

Roast them over oil / margarine on a medium flame. Turn over both sides till you get a dark brown crust.

Assemble it in a burger and relish. :-)
