So this burger had come 3rd out of 5th (those 5 selected out of other 50) in a burger battle held in London, NY and Frisco made by Anand (my son). What more it was the only Jain / veggie burger in all 50! Now my daughter in law and I have upgraded the recipe to next level and made it even better. You can find recipe of homemade mayo and peri-peri in the recipe notes section at the end of the page.
Chickpea Quinoa Burger
MAKING THE PATTY
Add the chickpeas, corn, spices, herbs and salt to taste
Mix it until it's combined well.
Make sure it doesn't become too smooth as it will become difficult to shape it into a patty.
Now mix the capsicum, quinoa and plain flour and combine well.
Once done, keep the patty inside a refrigerator for half an hour.
HEATING THE BUNS
Cut the buns halfway through and place it on a hot pan.
After half a minute flip it.
Let it get toasted for a few seconds and then keep it aside.
Do the same for both the buns.
ASSEMBLING THE BURGER
Take one toasted bun, apply peri peri mayo.
I heat the cheese on the burger patty itself, but if you are not comfortable doing that then skip this stip.
On the other bun apply peri peri coleslaw.
On it put the burger patty and then a slice of cheese.
On that two or three slices of tomato.
On it splash some fresh coriander and then cover it with the other bun.
