For The Cutlets
crumbled ANANDA GOLD PANEER
boiled and crushed green peas
boiled, peeled and mashed potatoes
green chili paste
1 1/2 tsp
finely chopped coriander (dhania)
whole wheat bread crumbs
whole wheat bread
crumbs for coating
whole wheat (gehun) burger buns
big lettuce leaves
big tomato, thinly sliced
sliced onions (optional)
salt and freshly ground black pepper powder to taste
For the Cutlets
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a 100 mm. (4”) thick flat cutlet.
Roll each cutlet in bread crumbs till they are evenly coated from both the sides.
Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the cutlets till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside.
How to Proceed
Cut a bun horizontally into two.
Butter the bun halves using 1 tsp of butter and toast them lightly on a tava (griddle). Keep aside.
Place the lower half of the bun on a clean, dry surface with the buttered side facing up. Place a lettuce leaf on the bun and spread 1½ tbsp. of the mayonnaise over it.
Place a cutlet, a few tomato slices and an onion slice over the cutlet. Finally sprinkle salt and pepper over it.
Cover with the remaining half of the bun with the buttered side facing down and press it lightly. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more burgers.
How to Pack
Insert a toothpick in the centre of each burger and wrap in an aluminum foil or cling film and pack in a Tiffin box along with tomato ketchup.
