Avocado Patty Burgers (Eggless/with egg - both the recipes)

These days most of us wants to live their lives on a healthy platform. Everyone wants to be fit and honestly speaking one has to. I am on the same track even :))). I always avoid eating burgers, though I just love them. Sacrificing them is a big task :((( What if you find Health and taste together ???
One morning I had wheat buns with me. Some avocados, eggs, about to make salad. But suddenly I thought to make avocados and egg Patty burger. Sounds a bit different and unusual but trust me guys its full of taste. Once you start preparing them you will forget those fried aloo/chicken pattice. They are very easy to make with very little ingredients. As avocado have a very bland taste hence they can be mixed very well with others for a nicer taste. 

I usually purchase avocados and keep them for 2-3 days. Once they are perfectly ripped I use them for making salads or Mexican Guacamole.  But this time I incorporated it with some eggs and made burger Patty for it. And guess what it was a super duper hit in my house. Avocados have many health benefits, few of them are -
  • Lowers cholesterol levels and maintaining a healthy heart.
  • Controls blood pressure
  • Regulates the blood sugar levels 
  • My fav-Anti-aging properties 
  • It protect against cancer 
  • Has lots of goodness for Skin 
  • Gives lot of energy 
I prepared it with eggs but it can also be very well prepared without them. So here I am posting both the versions :)))))

For the whole wheat buns please visit the mentioned link - Whole wheat seeded buns

Ingredients for the Patty with egg :
  • Avocado - 1 nos
  • Hard boiled egg - 1 nos
  • Corn flour - 1/2 tbsp
  • Semolina/Rava - 1 tbsp
  • Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp (adjust as per the taste)
  • Oil - 1/2 tsp 
 Ingredients for Assembling burger :
  • Wheat buns - 1 nos
  • Ice burg lettuce leaves - few
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Sliced Onions (optional)
  • Some low fat spread - I used hung curd with little salt & pepper as a spread
Method :
Making Patty
  • Slit the avocado in between and take out the seed. Now with the help of a spoon scrape out its pulp leaving the skin.
  • In a bowl mash it and add finely chopped egg
  • Add rest of the ingredients - salt, garlic powder, chili powder, semolina and cornflour and mix well. Give it a minute, let semolina absorb some moisture.
  • Apply some water on the palms and try to make out a Patty (size depends as per your choice). It will be a bit sticky but no worries.
  • Immediately put it on a hot pan and drizzle some oil. Cook for a couple of minutes on medium flame and then turn lightly and then again cook.
Assembling the burger :
Slit the bun in to two. Keep it on the same pan without any oil, and slightly warm them up.
Apply spread on the bun, put lettuce leaves, then Pattie, then tomatoes/onions and cover it with the other part of the bun. And your burger is ready.

For the Eggless version, instead of egg simply mix a small sized boiled potato to it and rest of the ingredients & method will be same :)))

Enjoy your yummy Breakfasts !!!!!

Thanks n Happy Cooking
