A “burger” is a sandwich made by placing veggie or meat patty between the two slices of burger buns. It is flavored with different types of sauces, ketchup or mayonnaise. Placing different veggies such as iceberg lettuce, tomato, onions, cucumber, capsicum, pickles, jalapeno or cheese adds flavor to the burger. The burger is a satisfying meal and is a filler.
Usually, the patty of the burger is made from ground meat, chicken, turkey, beef.
A veggie burger is made with patty made from potatoes, sweet potato, beans, tofu, paneer, chickpea.
Today I am sharing with you the recipe for a burger made with Chickpea patty. Chickpea is a good source of protein.
The patty made from Chickpea is very crispy from outside and soft from inside.
The French onion creamy dip gives a very creamy and caramelized taste of onions to the burger. However, if you do not have this dip you can use mayonnaise instead.
The size of the patty can be made as per the size of burger buns. I have shallow fried the patty. You can deep fry it if you want.
The burger is loaded with fresh veggies such as tomato, lettuce, cucumber, onions, capsicum. It makes the burger look colorful and gives exotic fresh flavors to the burger.
