Quick and easy veggie bean burger made with kidney beans, flattened rice, onions and tomatoes. It is flavoured with a few herbs and spices.

It is the best vegetarian burger I have ever made. Requires only a few ingredients yet tastes delicious. For this, I have used kidney beans but you can also use the black bean or chickpea if you like. Cook it until tender. Then make a coarse paste. To this paste, add the sauteed onion-tomato mixture and soaked poha/flattened rice. The latter gives a beautiful texture to the pattie and also helps in binding. Then give it a good mix. Form patties and cook until golden in colour.

To assemble the burger, apply any kind of spread/sauce over the buns. Here I have used peri-peri mayonnaise. Place the rajma pattie over it. Add a few slices of tomatoes and onions. Place the other slice of the bun over the top and serve.

Prep Time: 40 min | Cook Time: 10 min | Total Time: 50 min

Yield: 4 burgers

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups boiled kidney beans or rajma
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 medium-sized onions, finely chopped
  • 2 medium-sized tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup flattened rice or poha
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4-5 tbsp oil
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh green chillies, chopped
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Directions:

Take flattened rice/poha in a bowl and rinse it once or twice. Soak it in water for 5 minutes. Using a strainer, drain all the water from the poha. Keep it aside.

Pour the kidney bean/rajma into the blender and make a coarse paste.

Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium flame. Add chopped garlic and saute for a minute.

Add chopped onion and cook until it is translucent.

Add the chopped tomatoes and pour salt. Mix it well.

Add coriander powder, red chilli powder and black pepper powder. Give it a nice mix. Cook until it no longer smells raw and oil begins to separate.

Add chopped coriander leaves and green chillies. Give it a mix and turn the flame off.

Pour this spice mix into the kidney bean paste. Mix it well.

Then add the soaked flattened rice into the bowl and mix it well. Place the bowl in the freezer for 30 minutes to set.

Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium flame. Divide the bean mixture into 4 parts. Wet your hands and form 4 large patties. Place the patties in the pan and cook until both sides are golden and crisp.

Toast the buns in the same pan and then place them on a plate.
