This is real feast you can offer to bouncy young kids after their playtime!! Also, wrapped nicely in a foil, this could go into anyone’s office or school lunch pack too. Such a juicy, home-made burger bun, to enjoy without a fraction of guilt as it is free from all kinds of preservatives or processed ingredients. You can make patties, wrap them in a cling film and store them in the freezer which will come quite handy on a later date.
What you need to make up to 8 burgers:
|Minced meat (Beef or Chicken)||300 g|
|Tomato Ketchup||3 tbsp|
|Worcester sauce (optional)||1 tsp|
|Soy sauce||2 tbsp|
|Ginger grated||1 tbsp|
|Green chili (chopped)||1|
|Salt and pepper to taste|
Let’s make :
- Chop the onion , green chili , coriander leaves and the ginger root.
- Grate the bread slice into crumbs.
- In a large bowl, mix minced meat, chopped onion, ginger, green chill, coriander leaves, bread crumbs, tomato sauce, soy sauce, Worcester sauce, salt and pepper to taste, using your fingers until everything comes together.
- Now, take a handful from the mixture, make a ball and flatten it thickly. If your fingers are sticky, wet them with water.
- Next, spray olive oil onto a non-stick frying pan or a griddle and place the patty. Fry one side and then slowly turn to the other side being careful never to press it down with your spatula. If pressed down, all the juices will run out, making it dry and crumbly. When both sides are properly cooked, place it on a kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
- Now, place the flat sides of the buns on the same frying/griddle pan and let it slightly browned.
- Squeeze tomato sauce and a dollop of mayonnaise sauce on to the bun.
- Arrange lattice shreds, place cucumber slices, onion slices and tomato slices.
- Next, place the burger patty and a cheese slice on top.
- Cover with the top part of the bun and press down gently.
- Wrap in a foil to pack in your lunch or if you can not resist, take a big mouthful !!
