Faux Keema (Minced Meat) Burgers.

I am posting here after AGES! And I have no excuse at all, I have been really putting it on the backburner for a long time and now I have so many posts that I need to type! I hope every one has been doing fine :) Now, without further ado, here I go...

I made these Soya Granules Burgers today and they turned out so delicious, I just knew I had to put them up here as soon as possible. Just calling them Faux Meat Burgers to sound fancy ;)

Faux Minced Meat Burgers/ Soya Granules Burgers
Serves 4-5


1 cup Soybean Granules
1 Medium Onion, Finely Chopped
1 teaspoon Ginger-Garlic Paste
4 slices of Bread
1 tablespoon Red Chili Powder
2 tablespoons Coriander Powder
1 tablespoon Garam Masala Powder
1 teaspoon Chaat Masala Powder
A handful of Chopped Coriander Leaves/Cilantro Leaves
Mustard Sauce to taste
Ketchup to taste
Dark Soy to taste
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Burger Buns
1 Tomato, thinly sliced into roundels


Boil the Soya Granules in 3 cups of water with a dash of Soy sauce. Then drain them and set aside. In a pan, heat up 1 tablespoon Oil and add in the Onions, sauté them till translucent.Then add in the Ginger-Garlic paste and fry for a minute. Turn the heat to medium low, and add in the Soya Granules followed by Red Chili Powder, Coriander Powder, Garam Masala Powder. Mix well, add Salt and Pepper. Transfer this to a flat dish and let it cool.

Once cool, add in 4 slices of bread, soaked in water and squeezed, the Coriander Leaves, a dash of Mustard and Ketchup each, and Chaat Masala Powder. Knead this into a  dough and form patties. I made 12. Then fry them on medium low on a pan lightly coated with Oil. I did them 4 at a time, 3 minutes each side. They don't break unless you add a lot of pressure, so there is nothing to worry.

Now toast your buns and assemble your burgers, a half of the bun, followed by the patty, then a slice of Tomato, a dash of Mustard and Ketchup if needed, and top it off with the other half of the bun. No rocket science here! :P And ENJOY!
