Fresh Breadcrumbs ... 1 cup
Egg ... 1 no
Salt ... to taste
Oil ... ¼ cup

3. Put oil in a flat micro safe dish and heat on High for 2 minutes and place the patties in oil and roll them to be coated with oil properly.
4. Cook on High for 3 minutes; turn the side and cook for 2 minutes. You may use them like this or grill them for 10 to 15 minutes.

Assemble the way veg burgers are described:
For Veg Burger Patties
Soya Granules ... 1 cup
Potatoes boiled ... 3 no
Green Peas boiled ...1 cup
Onion chopped...1 small
Green Chilies chopped ... 6 no
Coriander chopped ... ¼ cup
Pepper powder... 1 tsp
Garam Masala... 1 tbsp
Roasted Gram powder ... ½ cup
Fresh Breadcrumbs ... 1 cup
Egg ... 1 no
Oil ... 2 tbsp
Salt ... to taste
Burger Buns ... 6 no
Preparation and Cooking
1. Soak soya granules in water for 30 to 40 minutes; drain and squeeze; wash and squeeze again.
2. Combine soya, potatoes, peas, onion, chilies and egg in a grinder and grind coarsely.
3. Mix roasted gram powder, breadcrumbs, salt, coriander and other dry spices with soya paste thoroughly and divide into equal portions to shape 3-inch round patties.
4. Put oil in a flat micro safe dish and heat on High for 2 minutes; place the patties in the dish and roll to cover them with oil; cook on micro High for 2 minutes; turn the side and cook for 2 minutes on High. Stand the dish for 3 minutes.
5. You may use the patties cooked like this or grill them for 10 to 15 minutes, turning over after 5 minutes.
Assembling and Serving: Cut 6 burger buns into two parts, brown the inner side under the grill for 5 minutes; apply Tomato sauce on one side and Green Chutney on the other side and place the patties, one each, in the centre. Place a piece of lettuce, onion slice and tomato slice, too, in each burger. Cover with the other half; secure them with toothpicks and serve with additional Sauce and any of the Salads.
Tip: Soya granules are rich in protein that provides natural vitamins and minerals essential for children's growth. Since the soya preparations are low in cholesterol and fats, they are light and easy to digest; excellent for people on diet; expectant mothers, diabetics, heart patients and the aged, etc; any food lover can enjoy them with zest and zeal. Burgers being the popular snacks of today’s world, this option is being given here. Of course, you can use your popular potato patties, too, for making burgers.
Avoid: Using fried patties for making burgers for your growing children because with lots of fats, hardly any nutrition value is there. If you plan sensibly and provide good Salad and a Soup along with the burger, even this so-called junk fast food also provides nutrition.
