Veg Burger Recipe-Mc Donald’s Style Burger Patty Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF
Veg burger recipe

Don’t u get tempted to try if you come across a recipe titled “Mc Donald’s style Veg Burger Recipe” ??. I know many of your answers would be YES!. 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. Soon I will try to 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. Procedure may seem a bit lengthy as I made bread crumbs and corn meal on my own. If you have them readymade in hand, making this burger would be really easy !!

HOW TO MAKE VEG BURGER - METHOD

Veg burger recipe-1
  • Wash and soak poha in hot water for 20 minutes. Then crush & squeeze it with your hands very well. It will become a dough like thing. Keep it covered & set aside.
Veg burger recipe-2
  • Pressure cook potatoes, peel the skin, mash it well. Cook the peas and keep it ready. Chop the carrots and keep it in hot water till use. Chop onions.
Veg burger recipe-3
  • In a kadai, heat oil and saute onions, crushed garlic cloves till onion turns transparent. Now add the carrot and saute till its soft. Add some salt to quicken the cooking process. Lastly add the mashed potato and cooked peas. Add little water & let the carrot cook for some time.After carrots are cooked & water is absorbed, add the spice powder mix. Adjust salt. Mix well & Mash it with the back of ladle. 
  • Finally add the soaked & squeezed poha and maida. Mix well. Poha & maida acts as a binding agent here. So mash it really well and make the entire mixture to a thick dough. Switch off the flame & let it cool.

Veg burger recipe-5
  • After the mixture is cooled down, wrap it in a polythene sheet like a cylinder as shown in the picture. Cover the edges using a rubber band. Refrigerate it for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
    • After 30 minutes, remove the patty dough and roll it tightly. Cut it into roundels. Refer picture below. The size of the patty should be the size of burger. Roll the patty on the kitchen counter or a plate to bring uniform thickness and to make a perfect round.
Veg burger recipe-6
  • In the mean time, prepare the batter & bread crumbs. To prepare bread crumbs, remove the corners i.e brown part of the bread and powder it in a mixie. Set aside in  a plate. Homemade instant bread crumbs is ready. For the batter, mix all the ingredients given under “ for batter” and add little water to make a thick dosa batter consistency. Keep it ready.
Veg burger recipe-7
  • Now dip the patty and in maida batter. Again dip in bread crumbs. Repeat the same once again. Yes, you have to coat it twice to get a super crispy exterior.
Veg burger recipe-8
  • Now heat oil to deep fry and check the temperature by dropping a pinch of batter. If it comes up, simmer the flame completely and drop the patty. If the heat of the oil is high, patty will burn. So take care. Cook only in low flame till they turn golden brown in both the sides. Flip it whenever needed. Deep fry, remove & drain in a tissue. Repeat the same procedure and keep all the patties ready.
Veg burger recipe-9
  • For arranging the burger : Take the burger bun and slit into two roundels. Toast in dosa pan by drizzling oil or butter. Take one portion of the bun and apply mayonnaise using a spoon.
Veg burger recipe-10
  • Wash and chop lettuce & celery. Place some of them on the bun.Now keep the patty. Above the patty keep some lettuce leaves, tomato slice & cheese slice. Cover it with another portion of toasted bun.( I applied mayonnaise on both the portions of bun as we love it that way)
      • Adjust the quantity of mayonnaise as per your taste.You can also keep some onion rings, tomato slices & cheese slices if you like.

Serve immediately with ketchup !! Enjoy it to the core !!



Note


  • 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 you are planning to make this for parties, you 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 your taste.You can also add keep some onion rings,tomato slices & cheese slices if you like.

Try this veg burger recipe for your family. I am sure you won’t step into Mc D anymore !

Navita said...

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.

Chitra said...

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 :)

rajesh said...

Unknown said...

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

Chitra said...

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

Chitra said...

This happens if the cooked vegetables have some water content in it.To make it hard you can add some maida to it.Then refrigerate n proceed.Hope it helps :) Thanks.

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...?

Chitra said...

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 :)

Hi can you tell me substitute of wrap or what type of wrap should I use to store this dough ....

Chitra said...

You can use cling wrap or in a ziplock cover. Clean tupperware box is also fine but use it quickly in one or two days.

harini said...

Hi Chitra want to try this recipe.if we keep cheese slice we have to bake it.isnt it?if so at what temperature and time we have to bake?

Chitra said...

Hi Harini, This is a no bake recipe. Just deep fry the patties, place in between two buns and arrange celery, cheese slice as suggested in the recipe. No need to heat or bake anything. If you want to heat it, just arrange everything microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute and serve immediately.
