Servings 4 burgers


  • 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


  • 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.
  • Serve the patties on the buns topped with peri-peri mayo, tomato and onion slices. You can add any other desired toppings. Enjoy!
