Homemade Burger in a jiffy
Yesterday my son MS had a big complain. According to him I am not making any of his favorite dish anymore. He also added that everyday lunch comprising of rice, vegetable and meat/seafood so boring . So being a very obliging Mom:), I decided to prepare his two most favorite dish. That is spaghetti Bolognese for lunch, and homemade chicken burger for dinner. I’ve already entered the Bolognese recipe before. Here is the recipe for the homemade chicken burger.
500gm chicken meat
1 large onion
3-5 slices of capsicum ( red, green & yellow)
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp of fennel powder
1-2 tsp chilly powder
Freshly ground black pepper
Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend to a paste. Scoop then into several balls. Heat a little oil a heavy bottomed pan. Pat the balls into chicken patties and shallow fry them on slow fire two at a time. Your chicken burger is ready.
There are several ways to serve them. You can put them in a burger bun and top with lettuce, salad, carrots, mayo, and cheese.
Alternatively you can cut the burger into strips and put them into pita bread with coleslaw .You can also cut up these burgers and use them as pizza topping. Happy cooking
I put in the capsicum for some added nutrients,you can add other vegetable such as sweet corn, beans,chives or coriander leaves
