Your kids will jump with joy and thank you for this sumptuous treat! A succulent cutlet of paneer and coarsely crushed green peas gives an exciting twist to this crunchy, juicy, satiating burger. Eggless mayonnaise provides the required creaminess, while veggies and lettuce impart an enjoyable crunch to this Paneer and Green Peas Burger. Interestingly, this burger stays fresh in the tiffin box for around 5 hours, and can be comfortably sent to school for your kids, with all your love! Fat Free Wafers is a good accompaniment to the burger, so do pack some in another tiffin.

For the paneer and green pea cutlets

  1. Put the crumbled paneer in a clean, deep bowl. You can even grate the paneer if you wish, it works fine both ways.
  2. To this add the green peas. The peas are first washed, boiled and then drained. Then they are added to a blender and blended for a few seconds till coarsely crushed. We do not want the peas to be completely grinded up.
  3. Then add the boiled, peeled and mashed potatoes to the bowl.
  4. Now add the green chili paste and fresh coriander as well.
  5. Now add the bread crumbs and salt to taste. You can add fresh bread crumbs or even panko (dried) bread crumbs. This will help bind the Paneer and green pea mixture together. 
  6. Mix the ingredients well with your hands till they combine properly.
  7. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions.
  8. Shape each portion into a 100 mm. (4”) diameter thick flat cutlet by rolling and shaping it between both your palms.
  9. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it with little oil. We are going to pan fry these cutlets but if you wish you can even deep fry them by first coating them in a maida-water mixture and then in breadcrumbs like done in the Paneer and Corn Burger.
  10. Place the cutlets on the hot, greased tava.
  11. Cook them on both sides, using a little oil, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Keep aside. Since the patty is delicate, flip it using a spatula and a spoon to make it easier.

How to proceed for the Paneer and Green Pea Burger

  1. Cut each burger bun horizontally into two using a serrated knife.
  2. Apply a little butter on the cut sides of each half of the burger bun.
  3. Toast them lightly on a non-stick tava (griddle).
  4. Apply butter on the other sides of each half of the burger bun.
  5. Toast that lightly as well and keep aside.
  6. Place a lower half of the bun on a clean, dry surface.
  7. Spread 1 tbsp of mayonnaise evenly over it.
  8. Place a lettuce leaf over it. This will give freshness and a light crunch.
  9. Over that, place a cutlet.
  10. Then place 2 tomato slices and 1 onion slice over it.
  11. Finally sprinkle a little salt and pepper evenly over it.
  12. Cover with the upper half of the bun and press it lightly to keep all the stuffing from falling out.
  13. Repeat steps 1 to 12 to make 3 more burgers.
  14. Serve it with Masala French Fries and a Choco Shake to make a complete meal.
