SAMOSA INSPIRED VEGGIE BURGERS/PATTIES

samosa

I love creating veggies burgers/patties. I especially love experimenting with different flavour combinations. My samosa inspired veggie burgers/patties were a MASSIVE hit with hubs and I’m super excited to share the recipe with you all.

Ingredients:

Spice Mix:

2-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 inch piece of ginger (minced)
1 tbsp. vegetable stock powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. Kashmiri chilli powder
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. garam masala
Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper (for seasoning)

Burgers/Patties:

2 x large white potatoes (peeled and roughly chopped)
2 x medium sweet potatoes (peeled and roughly chopped)
1 large brown/yellow onion (finely diced)
1 large carrot (finely diced)
1 cup of breadcrumbs
1/2 cup of frozen corn kernels
1/2 cup of frozen peas
1 cup of breadcrumbs
2-4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon zest
Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper (for seasoning)

Directions:

Step 1: boil, or steam, the potatoes and sweet potatoes until just tender then transfer to a mixing bowl and set aside to cool slightly

Step 2: heat 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat then add all of the spice mix ingredients and cook, stirring frequently, for a few minutes or until fragrant

Step 3: add the onion and the carrot and continue to cook for a further few minutes

Step 4: add the frozen corn kernels and the frozen peas, season with Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper, and cook for a further few minutes then remove the pan from the heat and set aside

Step 5: roughly mash the potatoes and sweet potatoes (important note: I say “roughly” because you want your burgers/patties to have some texture) then add the samosa spiced veggies, the lemon zest and the breadcrumbs and stir to combine

Step 6: divide the mixture into 12 and form your burgers/patties (important note: feel free to add more breadcrumbs if you feel its necessary)

Step 7: in batches, heat the remainder of the extra virgin olive oil and cook your burgers/patties for a few minutes each side, or until they start to crisp up and turn golden brown

Step 8: serve immediately or, alternatively, allow to cool then freeze for consumption at a later date

IMPORTANT NOTE: personally, when cooking these burgers/patties from frozen, I prefer to bake them in the oven (180°C for 10-15 minutes)
