Corn Burger

Homemade Corn Burger is … simply the best!

Corn Burger Recipe

Imagine: Lightly spiced corn-potato patties.. with a nice and crispy texture yet soft inside.. almost bordering on juicy! (emphasis on the word: almost. It is not a beef burger. It is a corn burger. There is only so much a vegetarian can do to emulate meat dishes! ;))

Corn Burger Recipe

My brother and I are huge Burger-fans! Every time I step out, McDonalds pulls me with its amazing aroma of a McAloo Tikki and I end up indulging in not one but two large burgers! Then came a point when I decided I was done helping McDonalds entice me into its outlets. I can cook pretty well. And I put together this gorgeous piece of corn burger!

I’d be lying if I say this tastes exactly like the McDonald’s burger. It does not. However, it is homemade and tastes a hundred times better! I don’t know why. I don’t use Mayonnaise on my burger like they do nor do I deep fry my patties. I think I take comfort in the fact that everything that went into the burger is “healthy” and hence I perceive the taste to be better than McD. Whatevs… I made an awesome Corn Burger. And now, I’m done being McDonald’s bit*h! ;)

Mix well. Taste and adjust for seasoning. At this point you can proceed to make the patties. However, letting the mixture chill in the fridge for 15-20 minutes will make the job much more easier!

Make patties (size can depend upon the size of your burger buns). Since I let my mixture rest in the fridge, it was easier to make the patties.

In a griddle, heat some oil and add the patties. Do not overcrowd the pan. Let it cook for 4-6 minutes on medium low without disturbing or moving the patties

When the patties are cooked, it’ll be easier to flip. Flip and cook for another 4-6 minutes. (At this point, you can even serve the patties as is with Tomato Ketchup)
