Oats Vada Burger

oats vada burger2

Oats vada burger!! or rather South Indian version of burger :)

This was one other dish that I tried for the cooking contest that happened last week. Combining the oats and vada batter was a serious challenge as I had said and this idea struck me when I wanted to make a western dish out of the said ingredients. The patty was crisp on the outer side and soft inside, just as perfect as we would love it for a burger.

A perfect healthy snack for kids and grown up kids as well :)

oats vada burger


Burger buns – 3
Tomato sauce

For patty:

Oats – ½ cup
Potato – 1

Bengal gram dhall – 1 cup

Green chillies – 2
Bread crumbs
Oil – for frying

To make patty:

Soak Bengal gram dhall for 1 hour in water. Grind the dhall coarsely without adding much of water.

Cook and mash potato smoothly.

Dry roast the oats for three mins.

Chop chillies finely.

Add the mashed potatoes, chillies and roasted oats to the Bengal gram batter and mix well until it rolls into dough.

Now make medium sized balls of dough and flatten it with the palm. Dip them in a plate of bread crumbs until they are well coated on all the sides.

Heat oil in a pan and fry until well cooked and golden brown on both the sides.

Assembling burger:

Cut the burger bun horizontally into two. Spread a little tomato ketchup and mayonnaise on both the halves.

Place a lettuce leaf on the lower half. Top it with a slice of onion and a slice of tomato. Place the above made patty and again a slice of tomato, onion, cheese singles and lettuce. Close the burger with the top half.

Enjoy burger with hot tea :)
