A wonderful twist to the regular burgers we have. The spice powders in the bhaji are just perfect! The veggies in the bhaji gives a light but great mouthfeel. Bhaji when topped with cheese and grilled definately enhances the taste. Cooking on tava might be fine but i dont think it might give that amazing taste which is given by the grilling method. I made this burger and trust me not only me but my family loved it too!
