Hara bhara kabab burger

Do you like burgers? I know many of you consider it as junk food 😦 but don’t worry my version of burger is going to be completely healthy. I am using Hara Bhara Kabab or the patties made of green peas. Also, instead of deep frying the kabab, if you shallow fry, you are going one more step ahead to achieve the health quotient. Sounds interesting? OK then let’s see how to make the healthy burger.

Ingredients:

  • Bun 1
  • Cucumber 2 slices
  • Tomato 2 slices
  • Lettuce leaves 2
  • Harabhara Kabab 2 ( frozen )
  • Oil 1 tables spoon
  • Tomato sauce 1 table spoon
  • Mayonnaise 1 table spoon
  • Mustard sauce 1 tea spoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper 1/2 tea spoon
  • Cheese slice 1

Method:

First, cut the bun into half and keep it aside.

Open the packet of frozen hara bhara kabab, keep it outside for some time in room temperature. It will help to moisten the kabab.

Take the pan and heat the oil in it.

After some time, take the kabab in your hand and press it little by your palm and shallow fry.

Once the kababs are fried from both the sides, take it out of the pan and keep on the kitchen towel.

Now, take the bottom side of bun and place the lettuce leaves on it. After that keep the fried kabab on top of it.

Arrange the tomato and cucumber slices on the kabab, and put tomato sauce, mustard sauce, and mayonnaise.

Put a slice of processed cheese and on top of that keep the top side of the bun.

The burger is ready to serve.
