Let’s begin tomorrow, our Independence Day, with a fun-time breakfast. Here’s a very easy recipe for Tricolour Veg Burgers as an Independence Day special treat. You can prepare the sauces in advance and assemble at the last moment. So ladies, save some cooking time and have fun…
Makes 6 burgers
Burger breads 6 – cut each one into 4 circles
The bottom green layer:
Green chutney (sauce) – grind the following into a paste and keep aside:
- 4 green chillies,
- 1 cup coriander leaves,
- 6-7 garlic,
- 1 tsp jeera (cumin – whole),
- 1 tsp lemon juice.
Middle white layer
6 cheese slices, 2 boiled potatoes sliced,
Eggless plain mayonnaise (optional)
Top orange layer
Ketchup or homemade red chilli chutney
For red chutney:
Boil some water, put off the gas and soak 6 whole red chillies in it for an hour.
Grind together red chillies, 6 garlic pods, 1 tsp vinegar and salt till it is a smooth paste. Keep aside.
METHOD OF ASSEMBLING EACH BURGER
To assemble the burgers use the green items in the lowermost part, white in the middle and orange at the top.
Bottom layer: Apply a thick layer of green chutney. Place cucumber slices on it.
Place the next bread slice on it and apply a little butter.
Middle layer: Trim the edges to form circular cheese slices and place these on the buttered bread.
Arrange some potato slices and sprinkle a pinch of salt.
Keep another slice of the burger bread and apply a little butter.
Apply some red chilli chutney or ketchup, and add grated carrot on it.
Spread some butter on the last slice of bread and place it on top.
Note: For small children you can substitute red chilli sauce with ketchup.
Now cut the burger into two halves and turn them on their side to show the three colours of the Indian Flag.
