Hash brown Burger and a cute award!

As a change one fine day we wished to have a different lunch and we sacrificed our staple food i.e., RICE.So I browsed quickly through my freezer and came out with this handy "hash brown potato patties ", which is the main ingredient to make this burger. Then I proceeded with this vegetarian Burger with an Indian touch. Packed this in aluminium foil as his lunch pack.

Another sweet thing is Gita at Gita's kitchen has passed me a cute Chocoholic Award.
Thanks a lot Gita for this yummy award:).
I am much delighted to pass on this award to
Sireesha at mom's recipes for her cute Deepavali sweets.
Purva at Purva's daawat for her chocolate cake
soma at e-curry for her orange flavored chocolate farfel
Congrats Sireesha, Purva and Soma!

Here is the recipe for Hash brown Burger.

Burger buns - 4
Hash brown poatao patties (frozen) - 2
green chilli - 1
Green bell pepper - 1/2
Red onion - 1 (medium size)
shredded cheese - 1 tbsp
besan flour - 1 tbsp
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
cilantro & mint leaf puree - 1 tsp
Tomato sauce - 3 tbsp
olive oil - 2 tsp

Heat a tawa , spread a pinch of butter/ oil and toast all the buns both sides. Keep aside.
Microwave the hash brown potato patties for 2 minutes and scramble them.
chop the onion , green chillies, tomato ,bell pepper and mix it with the scrambled potato.
Add ginger garlic paste,cheese, salt, cilantro - mint puree, Tomato sauce , besan flour and mix well.
Divide it into 4 eaual portions and make 4 balls.
Heat a tawa . Spread 1 tsp olive oil over the tawa.
Place one ball over the tawa and spread it to 1 inch thick patty.
Cook it both sides ,now your burger patties are ready.

Burger arrangement:

Place the one burger patty inside each toasted burger bun.
Mix some chopped green pepper, red onion with tomato sauce and introduce it as a layer between one side of patty and burger.
Decorate it with lettuce leaves.

Serving suggestions:
If you want to pack the burger for lunch then wrap it with silver foil after it gets cool (otherwise burger becomes soggy)and place inside container.
approximate calories in 2 such burgers = 450.
Serve hot with french fries , hot sauce and a chocolate drink. (yes, I am chocoholic).chocolate is made of cocoa .cocoa has a lot of antioxidants and helps us to get rid of depression , avoid premature aging of skin and to retain good health. So Guys lets all go chocoholic:)
