veggie burger recipe

veg burgers are an all time favorite at home. i make veg burger on occasions when we want to have street food like burgers or frankies with french fries. i always avoid getting veggie burgers from any food chain outlets. i make the veggie patties at home. even though it takes times, homemade ones are always better.

i had got some requests to post a veggie burger and i am finally posting the recipe. this veg burger recipe post has many pics, so please bear.

4 main elements in this veg burger recipe are:

  1. preparing the veg patties
  2. tangy sweet spiced mayonnaise sauce
  3. pan frying the veggie patties
  4. assembling the veg burger

i have adapted my veg cutlet recipe for the veg patties. the whole wheat burger buns i got from a local bakery. you can also make the burger buns a day or two before at home. since it takes time to make the veg burger recipe so plan in advance.

i used eggless mayonnaise. for a vegan option use vegan mayonnaise. also use oil instead of butter for toasting the burger buns.

the veg patties are flavored with indian spices. you can play around and add your choice of herbs and spices. similarly you can also alter the veggie filling inside the veg burger. thats the best part of making veg burger at home. you can make it as per your taste and liking.

as soon as the veg burger are assembled, serve them immediately with tomato ketchup, mustard sauce and some french fries. these veg burger are also filling and can serve as a lunch too. the recipe makes 4 regular veg burger.

  7. Lady…you are an angle sent by god for me. Mine is a love marriage which both side parents have not accepted and we are on our own. Kitchen and cooking is a terror for me and I can manage only rice and maggi and some silly curries. But after seeing your blog and following step by step my cooking has drastically improved. You know what, dear hubby is actually surprised and shocked how I improved suddenly. He is asking if someone is coming home to help me…hehehe of course its true…its YOU!!! Thank you so much…keep up the great work!! love ya5 stars

  8. I tried this recipe yesterday at the request of my nine year old daughter. It was awesome. What’s more, I served it to my husband when he came home for a late lunch and he loved it too!5 stars

  9. hi dassana, i have been following your delicious recepies…and they all turn out well.plus i would like to add that your way of posting the recepie is very easy to understand.
    one thing I would liketo know is that if possible please add the number of days a food item can be stored.fr example the puris if kept in airtight box,should be consumed in how many days? at time sthe place of living/country varies.similarly if we cud just make the patties,and store them in a fridge/freezer then it would be easier to serve hot when the kids come from school.please share tips on these…
    thanks4 stars

    • thanks a lot asha. i do not write about storing food items as food should always be consumed fresh, especially our indian food. there is a trend in india too of freezing leftovers and food, but i do not suggest that. as per ayurveda food consumed fresh is good for the body. for these patties, i would suggest to freeze for a day or two.

  10. Small correction, even though I could not find some of the ingredients still I make most of you recipes Dassana.

  11. Hi, trying your recipes one by one. I made this burger without myonnise, lettuce r cabbage leaves. And I used regular bun coz I could not find the burger bun. But it tasted very good and my kids loved them. Burger for Saturday and kulfi for Sunday. Both are a hit. Even I could not find some ingredients coz we live in a remote area, even I love to try your recipes. Thanx a lot dassana for your recipes efforts and hard work

    • thanks sushma for this sweet feedback. many of the recipes i post can be made without some ingredients. at times i even make medium sized patties sandwiched in whole wheat bread slices along with tomato and onion slices and some coriander-mint chutney. thanks again.

  12. hi dassana,
    I started cooking on my own recently after coming to the place where my husband has been working.. till now I haven’t been confident of cooking.. so I always avoided it. but now its only 3 of us and my hudband and my son has to go to office and school there was no other choice for me.. well last yr started my cooking experiments.. your site helped me alot in making the vegetables curries.. I am from kerala. today made kerala style coconut chutney and kerala style vegetable stew.. both came out well.. Thanks alot.. now I like cooking.. I still dont have confidence in me to ask husband how curry is.. but when see empty casserole after he had eaten I feel happy.. but I have seen him doing fingerlicking after finished eating on holidays. once a again thanks alot.. maybe going home this month.. have to cook for amma and to mother in law.. hope I’l be able to do well there also..
