The cutlet in this burger features an unusual duo: sweet corn and kabuli chana. Another unique aspect of this cutlet is that it uses a combination of oats and bread slices as a binding agent. Fresh coriander combined with a bouquet of dried herbs along with lemon juice energises the refreshing green mayonnaise spread. Top it with scrumptious veggies like lettuce, cucumber, onions and tomatoes and serve with spicy potato wedges, for a filling and delicious meal.

This burger was very different from the regular burgers we make...the main ingredient in cutlets is potatoes but this recipe calls for no potatoes, made with corn and kabuli chana..the green mayonnaise is yum as well...really worth a try!!
