Pumpkin Aloo Tikki Burger is a simple recipe and honestly its an on-the spot recipe. By that I mean, it was not planned as a part of my breakfast menu. I had boiled potatoes for making Aloo Tikki Burger. My husband loves Burger..
Who doesnt love a burger?
You are not accepting that you love it because you think its unhealthy. Well I know its not healthy as a fruit but everyone needs a change and so does our mind and body.
If we restrict too much by counting calories, we generally start munching on the cookies, juices and other processed foods. I believe instead of making these foods a forbidden fruit and hence craving more for them, its better to have a cheat meal once every fortnight and not just be obsessed about it.
Coming back to how I started with boiled potatoes and finally made a Pumpkin Aloo Tikki Burger. So since I have started Immunity Booster series and Pumpkin is the top most food in it, I asked myself why not try its Tikki?
With all usual ingredients, I added grated raw pumpkin to mashed boiled potatoes, with spices and bread crumbs to absorb extra moisture and shaped like a round patty.
Pretty Simple. Those who are health conscious may avoid deep frying these patties. I have deep fried them for the burger recipe.
For the Pumpkin Cutlet, I had pan fried them. They also taste good. Once I fried the Tikkis in two batches, I started with making burgers.
Harvest Gold is great when it comes to the fresh buns and I procured from it a day in advance. I love the sesame garnishing at the top of buns and they look authentic and taste awesome!
One may toss the buns on tawa with butter. I generally do that. However, I got my partner in helping me with the burgers and he didnt let me use butter.. Only the one in pics were allowed to be butter-kissed for the shiny clicks!!
Pl feel free to use butter. Applying salads, Mayonnaise, Ketchup and Cheese.. Yeah cheese melted as the tikkis were hot and given the tempertaure in India, even I almost melted while making these delicious burgers!!
Remember to share your story with me as I would love to hear how your burgers turned out!!
