KonkanFood

Food has always attracted me and been away from home for years for my studies and work taught me the importance of good home made food. Food makes me happy. I have named by blog "KonkanFood", I come from the konkan region of India and my food is majorly influenced by this region. I love eating and like to incorporate the delicious dishes I come across in my day to day life.

Chicken Burger

2 Comments

I like American chicken burgers, a variety to taste and endless toppings. You can never go wrong with burgers here. We use to go to this local restaurant, burgers were their specialty and we always loved the food there. Sadly it closed down. I have tried my best to make these burgers today and they tasted pretty good.

Hope you will too like them.

Following are the ingredients you will require for the burger.(This recipe will make 2 medium sized burgers)

250 grams minced chicken

2 medium sized onions

3 cloves garlic

1/2 inch ginger

2 tbsp coriander leaves

1 egg

1 tbsp soy sauce

4 to 5 lettuce leaves

3 to 4 tbsp unsalted butter

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp cajun powder

1 tsp paprika/chilli powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp cumin powder

3 to 4 tbsp Sriracha sauce

3 to 4 tbsp tomato sauce

1/2 avocado sliced

2 buns of your choice

2 tbsp mozzarella cheese

2 to 3 tbsp bread crumbs if required or 2 to 3tbsp of boiled potato

salt to taste

 

Method

1.We will start with making the burger , take the minced chicken in a large mixing bowl, add 1 grated onion with its juices, finely chopped garlic, ginger, coriander leaves, soy sauce, olive oil, egg, bread crumbs or boiled potato, cajun, cumin, coriander, chilli powder and salt to taste. Incorporate all the ingredients well and keep it aside.

2. In a flat pan add 1 tbsp of butter and add sliced pieces of 1 onion, saute them until golden brown, add salt and set them aside.

3. Apply a little oil on your palms and make 2 portions of the burger mixture and make patties with help of your palms and pat it on the same skillet you have used earlier for sautéing onions. Put in the remaining butter and cook the patties on both the sides, each side should take around 3 to 4 minutes at least.

4.Once the patties are ready put cheese of your choice on patties when they are still on the pan, this will allow the cheese to melt, you could cover the pan with plate or foil to accelerate the process of cheese melting.

4. Once the patties are ready its time for assembling your burger, take buns of choice, I have used whole wheat buns here. Cut them into half, place some lettuce leaves at the base, put the patty on it. Then goes the caramelized onions, sliced avocado, sriracha sauce and tomato sauce. Cover it with the top bun. Enjoy the Burger!!

 

Tips: You could also add caramelized bell peppers and  mayonnaise on the burger.
