After a yummy Veg Burger just loved to have a dessert - Rasmalai

Veg Burger is the one which I wanted to eat at Mc Donald & which isnt there in Mangalore. I love Veg Burgers than Pizzas, so I always wanted to have them but couldn’t have the tasty ones. At my home, among Amma, Sudarshan & me Im the one who love it the most. Now I m happy that I have a co. to eat Burgers and that’s My Sweet Husband. Here in Saudi Arabia, there is Mc Donald’s & I was so happy that I cud eat Mc Veg Burger at least here! One weekend we had been to Balad for shopping & I knew there is Mc Donald nearby & I started asking my hubby to take me there & he agreed, but again Iwas dissappointed I never got Veg Burger & I don’t eat Fish or Chicken. Guru realized that I felt bad but he got my mood back by saying don’t worry will go to other Local Mc nd bought me a Falafel to eat, it tastes somewhat like burger. Yest I decided to prepare Veg burgers at home so when I'd been for shopping with my frens I bought what the ingredients. But lettuce and mayonnaise Guru bought it for me. I put all my efforts in making Burger becoz I really wanted them to be yummy even though it was first time. I finished preparing burgers and gave one to Asra my friend & remaining was for us. I gave the burgers to guru & went to kitchen without even asking how it was? That’s bcoz i wasn't sure of the taste. But………. Lucky me Guru loved it so…………………… much that I was showered with praises & then I was just on top of the world. He told that he ate such burger after looooooong time. And next time wee need not go to Mc Donald’s bcoz I would prepare lovely ones at home. He always said Veg Burgers do not taste that well as to Fish or Chicken, but I proved it wasn’t right.
After my praises now I’ll come down to note the recipe.

Here is what is needed:
Burger buns-6
Chick peas (soaked overnight) – a handful
Garlic cloves- 5
Finely chopped onions – ½ cup
Finely chopped carrots – ½ cup
Fresh green peas – a handful
Sliced tomatoes cucumbers & onions \
Chopped green chilly – 1
Red chilly powder – 2tsp
Lettuce – few leaves
Cheese slices – 6
Boiled & coarsely mashed potatoes-2
Butter – 2 tbsp
Mayonnaise as per taste
Tomato ketchup as per taste
Bread crumbs for coating
Corn flour -2 tbsp
Oil for frying
Salt to taste

Method:
For Tikki-
Coarsely grind chick peas and garlic
Then in griddle heat 1 tbsp butter, then add the ground mixture & fry till golden brown.
Add chopped onions & fry till transparent
Add chillies carrots, peas & fry (do not over boil)
Then add potatoes & salt, mix well (do not add water for the mixture).
Keep this mixture in fridge so that it gets cooled.
After an hour take out the mixture out & mix corn flour.
Make large balls of this mixture & flatten these.
Roll the tikkis in bread crumbs and deep fry them in hot oil.
Remove when crisp.

For the Burger:
Just heat the buns by applying butter on both pieces.
Apply lots of mayonnaise on the bottom piece then place the tikki on it, place sliced onions cucumbers and tomatoes.
Then add tomato ketchup on it, place a slice of cheese & lettuce leave. Cover with the other bun & serve.
Yummy Burgers r tasty to Hog.


Rasmalai..........



Rasmalai:
A tasty dessert to have any time… Lots of milk, saffron, pistachios, almonds, sugar and yummy flavor just turns out to be rasmalai…..
I just love this and can have it everyday. But wouldn’t have bcoz I'd put on & on. I will write about the recipe next time when the rasmalai balls are perfect. Though it wasn’t very perfect we just loved it.
