How to make Yam Burger

  1. How to prepare Burger (patty): De-skin the yam, wash and cube them nicely. Deskin the bananas and slice them as well. Wash the chana dal. Crush the garlic cloves in a mortar-pestle.
  2. Now in a pressure cooker, add the yam, chana dal, raw banana, garlic, 1/2 tsp, salt, ginger and 1/2 cup water and pressure cook on high for one whistle and then simmer the flame, and cook till another two whistles.
  3. Let it cool and then crush to a paste with a potato masher.
  4. Grate the bottle gourd and squeeze out all the water nicely. You may use a muslin cloth to squeeze the Gheeya/Bottle gourd, as no water should remain. Add this to your yam mixture and mash again to mix.
  5. Now, add all the spices and rest of the vegetables-green, yellow and red capsicum and onion, all finely chopped.
  6. Add the corn flour and make patties.
  7. Heat oil in a shallow pan and fry till done.
  8. Mayonnaise Dressing: Chop all the vegetables and onion. Grate the garlic. Add this to the mayonnaise along with a pinch of black pepper and some olive oil. Mix well.
  9. Make the Burger Ready: Slice the tomatoes, shred the lettuce. Now, on the burger bun lower half, put the lettuce. (Cheese slice is optional). Spread the mayonnaise mixture and top it with 2-3 slices of tomatoes.
  10. Now put the patty and spread the mustard sauce and tomato sauce on top.
