Veg burger recipe

Don’t u get tempted to try if u come across a recipe titled “Mc Donald’s style Veg Burger Recipe” ??Batting Eyelashes I know many of your answers would be YESHappy.Yeah,i too tried Veg burger for the first time in my kitchen after getting very much tempted by watching this video.In that video,he had shared the recipe of Mc Donald’s style McVeggie burger patty recipe with easily available ingredients in all our pantries and moreover it was Eggless!.I just made few changes in the ingredients & method as per my convenience.I replaced corn meal with powdered corn flakes just like my KFC style Veg Strips and i used crushed garlic instead of garlic powder.The result was awesome!!The Patty was super crispy outside and soft inside.I also tried grilling in my convection oven instead of deep frying and it came out pretty well.You can also opt for shallow frying if you are calorie conscious.What ever be the method of cooking,patties taste great.This recipe is really a keeper and i am planning to make it for my daughter’s birthday party too.Sendhil loved it a lot and i guess he won’t take me to Mc Donald’s anymore as i started making it at home regularly Winking.Very soon,i will share my daughter’s most favourite KFC Potato krisper/Aloo burger recipe which would be more of our Indian style.Friends,do try this easy burger recipe using store bought burger buns and mayonnaise & let me know how it turned out for you Happy.Procedure may seem a bit lengthy as i made bread crumbs & corn meal on my own.If u have them readymade in hand,making this burger would be really easy !!

Veg burger recipe-12
Serve immediately with ketchup !! Enjoy it to the core !!


  • Use fresh burger buns for best taste.
  • As per the actual recipe,u have to refrigerate the boiled potatoes for 6 hours.But i skipped that step.
  • I have used corn flakes powder instead of corn meal here. U can add corn meal if u have in hand.
  • I coated the patty twice in the batter & bread crumbs to make a crispy exterior.But make sure oil is in right temperature else patty will get burnt.
  • You can make the patties instantly instead of refrigerating it for 30 minutes.In that case,take a ball of dough and pat it to bring the shape and proceed as given above.
  • If u r planning to make this for parties,u can make the dough very well in advance and refrigerate it by tightly wrapping in sheet & keep it covered.This dough stays good for 2 days in refrigerator if  properly stored.
    • Adjust the quantity of mayonnaise as per ur taste.You can also add keep some onion rings,tomato slices & cheese slices if u like.

  22. Hi Chitra, your recipe looks yummy. Planning to make for my sons birthday. Please suggest whether I can fry the patties in the morning for evening party. Thank you.

  23. Hi Navita,You can make the dough for patty & coat in bread crumbs.Keep it refrigerated in advance.But if you deep fry them in advance,i don't think its crispness would stay for long.U can try reheating in microwave but the actual crispness can't be achieved.So its better to do it half an hour before party :)

  24. Really very usefull.
    I am really surprised, how I missed such a great site !

  25. Hi chitra..

  26. Thanks a lot for your feedback :) Sure,I will try to make bean burger and share the recipe !

  27. Hi chitra!!!
    Powdered cornflakes will be added both in batter and patty??? Plz clarify???

    1. Add it only in the coating batter.No need to mix in dough.For dough,u should use soaked & squeezed poha.

  28. Hi Chitra u posted an excellent andperfect recipe for veg burgerMcdonal style. I made it today it came out very gud only problem that the patty mixture became very soft but after fryig it was crisp from outside what do i do to make d batter hard.

  29. Hi Chitra one more question regarding veg burger...the cornflakes powder is to b mixed in maida cornflour n oil. Batter or is to b mixed in bread crumbs powder.today i am remaking burgers as last time d paty aloo became soggy.any tips...?

    1. Yeah,you should mix cornflakes powder & maida,oil & water to make the batter for dipping aloo patty. Then you should coat in the bread crumbs. Repeat the same twice to get cripsy exterior.To avoid it becoming soggy,make sure the oil temperature is right and there is no moisture in the patty.Deep fry for long time in medium flame.Update the results once you got it right :)
