I tried to argue with myself a lot and tried to think down memory lane to think of a better burger that I have had, but I would have to go so far as to say that this is the best burger I have ever had. I know it is a huge thing to say, but this dish is comforting, packed with flavor, and light on the calories too. What can I say, it is a complete win-win situation :) I seriously recommend you guys to try this out! The best burger that I had before this one was the Ramly Burger on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 2 months ago. Ramly is the name of the company that manufactures these ready to eat frozen chicken and beef patties which you have to just grill or pan fry. You can find these stalls just like the Vada Pav stalls here in Mumbai and every local knows about them. That is just plain out greasy awesomeness. So I had to find a way to have the best of both worlds and I think I achieved it pretty well!!!
Soya Ramly Burger with Chili Mayo and Yogurt Green Slaw
Serves 4, but with the kind of awesomeness going around I would say that it serves 2 people coz they will go for seconds.
The recipe for these Burgers is basically just a bunch of my recipes put together, plus the buns and the Yogurt Green Slaw.
You will need :
1 recipe Faux Minced Meat Burger patties
1 recipe Homemade Mayonnaise plus I added some Chili Flakes to it.You could just use store bought Mayo and add chili flakes to it.
3 eggs for the omelet, and a dash of milk.
2 Cucumbers/Zucchini, thinly sliced into ribbons.
Yogurt Green Slaw:
For this you need:
1 cup shredded Cabbage
1 cup shredded Green pepper/Capsicum
1/2 cup Yogurt
2 tablespoons Homemade Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Mustard
lots of pepper
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Vinegar/1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
Mix in the Cabbage and Capsicum in a large bowl.
Then pour over the shredded veggies and mix well. I prefer mixing with hands, and I prefer a lot of pepper for the extra kick. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Once you have everything ready, assemble the Burger.
Beat the 3 eggs with very little salt and a dash of cream or milk. Heat a flat pan on medium and then pour a little, about a quarter of the egg mixture on the pan and then swirl it around so that you get a nice thin egg pancake. Turn the heat to medium low and let the egg cook.
Now add the Soya Patty in the center, and fold the egg around it like an envelope. Sorry I could not take a picture, there was just too much going on and I was working alone :) Toast your buns at the side while this process gets completed. Now place the parcel on the lower side of the bun and top it with some Mayo and then the Cucumber slices, now add some Mustard and/or Ketchup if desired, and some Green Slaw. Top with the other half of the bun and bite into a piece of heaven. I promise you that you will not regret making this.
Of course, one can experiment by using regular cole slaw, adding other veggies like bean sprouts, onions, Lettuce, whatever you like! But do let me know how it turns out :)
