Holla at Masala!..... Vegan Masala Burger!

Have a taste for Indian food but not in the mood the the typical dal, or those dishes that are meant to be served with naan, such as punjab eggplant or curried chickpeas.

Or maybe you just want something with that Indian flavor bite without the mess.....well, here is your solution.....Vegan Masala Patties.  Bursting with South Indian flavors and so not messy!

Vegan Masala Burger

Serve this with curried ketchup and a fresh mango salsa.  A little heat in the ketchup gives the burger a kick.  And, the mango salsa is light and refreshing to counterbalance the Indian spices.

2 carrots peeled and cut
1 small yukon gold potato peeled and cut
1/2 c frozen peas thawed
1/2 c corn
1/2 green bell pepper chopped
1/4 c chopped yellow onion
1/2 c rolled oats blended fine in food processor
1/4 c whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 tbsp evoo
1/2 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp tumeric
1/2 tbsp garam masala

Bowl pot of water and cook carrots and potatoes until soft (about 5 minutes).  Drain and set aside.  In saute pan, heat evoo and saute bell pepper and yellow onion until soft (3-5 minutes).  Add in carrots, potatoes, corn and peas and just saute until warm.  Add in the curry powder, tumeric and garam masala.  Once everything is mixed, transfer to bowl.  Mix in bread crumbs and blended oats.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add in 1/2 tbsp evoo and mix.  Form into patties and place in freezer for about 15-20 minutes.
Once semi frozen, remove.  Heat pan and cook patties in evoo about 3 minutes a side.  Serve with your favorite condiments!  (Try my suggestions!  You won't be disappointed!)
