Vegetarian burgers with some corn salad and saffron yogurt on the side


Bean Burger patties –

  1. 1 small can of black beans
  2. 2 cloves of garlic
  3. 2 green chillies
  4. 1/2 inch ginger
  5. 1 cup soy crispies
  6. 1/2 medium size onion (finely diced)
  7. 1 tomato (finely diced)
  8. 1 tsp coriander-cumin powder
  9. salt to taste


Saffron yogurt-  take 1/2 cup yogurt and squeeze out as much water as you can. You can do this by taking yogurt in a cloth and squeezing out the water. Alternatively, you could take the yogurt in a flat dish and absorb the water using kitchentowels. Trust me, it works very well.

  1. Now take 2 tsp water (boiling hot) and add few strands of saffron – about 10-12 and stir into the water.
  2. Keep aside for a few minutes till the water turns yellow. Then add it to the dehydrated yogurt and mix well. Add 1/2 tsp or less sugar (as per your taste).
  3. Mix well and keep aside for a few minutes.
  4. The yellow color on the yogurt grows after some time


1. Take the beans, garlic, ginger and chillies in a blender , add some water and blend. The mixture should look like a thick paste, runny in consistency

2. Add the remaining ingredients and leave aside for a few minutes. The soy crispies absorb the excess moisture and the mixture looks like thick paste

3. Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape them like burger patties. Place them in a plate and put into a freezer for an hour.

4. Preheat oven at 350 deg. Spray a baking dish with PAM and place the frozen patties on it. Place it in the oven. Cook both sides of the patties for 10-12 mins till they are brown and crispy. Burgers are ready!
