Introduction: Homemade Haricot or Navy Bean Burgers
Homemade HARICOT/NAVY BEAN BURGERS – an easy, healthy and homemade veggie burger with potatoes, white navy beans (haricot beans), aromatics and spices; you will never miss the meat/chicken!
Step 1: INGREDIENTS NEEDED:
4 to 6 burger buns (white/whole wheat/multigrain)
¼ cup of salted/unsalted butter
FOR THE BEAN PATTIES:
3 large potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
½ cup chopped onions
1 green chilli/jalapeno, finely chopped (optional)
1 cup of cooked white beans or Haricot beans (Mmade from dry beans or canned)
Handful of freshly chopped cilantro/coriander leaves
1 tsp red chili powder/paprika powder (more for color)
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala powder/curry powder
1 tsp amchur/dry mango powder/chaat masala powder (or use some lemon/lime juice; optional)
¼ to ½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp ¾ cup bread crumbs (or use 2 to 3 large slices of soaked bread with crusts removed)
Salt to taste
FOR THE MAYONNAISE SAUCE:
½ cup mayonnaise (with or without eggs)
1 to 2 tbsp tomato ketchup (you can use any ketchup like tomato-chilli or plain)
1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce
FOR COATING THE PATTIES:
2 to 3 tbsp rice flour, mixed with some water, salt, pepper and dried herbs
Semolina as needed (or use Panko breadcrumbs or freshly made bread crumbs)
Oil for shallow frying (any cooking oil of you choice)
OTHER INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THE BURGER:
Step 2: TO MAKE THE MAYONNAISE SAUCE:
Mix mayo and sauces to form a thick and delicious burger sauce; set aside.
If needed, dilute with some water or to make it more flavorful, some bottle pickled juice (like from a bottle of dill pickles)!
Step 3: TO MAKE THE BEAN BURGERS:
Pan grill or roast sliced burger buns on a griddle using some butter (or even oil). Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix mashed potatoes, beans, onions, cilantro and spices – red chili powder, turmeric powder, chaat masala or amchur powder (or lemon juice; optional), garam masala powder and coriander powders.
Add salt to taste and either bread crumbs or moist slices of bread (crust removed); mix (mashing the beans well) to form a smooth and even mixture.
Make burger patties (gather to form a large ball and flatten slightly so that the patty fits the size of the burger bun).
Chill the patties in refrigerator for about 30 minutes (optional) until the rest of the elements of the burgers are ready.
Now, make an assembly line of rice flour slurry and semolina in two bowls.
Heat a saucepan and add oil that is needed for shallow frying.
Once the oil is hot, dip the patties first in the rice slurry, then the semolina and shallow fry until golden brown and crispy on all sides; about 3 to 4 minutes.
You can also shallow fry the patties without the coating for a different texture of the burger bean patty.
Once the bean burger patties are ready, layer in between burger buns (slathered with mayo sauce) along with slices of tomatoes, onions and lettuce leaves.
Enjoy a healthy, homemade, vegan, spicy and Indian flavored white bean burger or Haricot bean burger with a tall glass of healthy fruit juice, hot cup of ginger tea or coffee and sides of either crisp potato chips, French fries or any other side you like for a delicious meatless meal!
ENJOY AND HAPPY COOKING!
Step 10: NOTES:
Adjust the amount of spices according to personal taste.
You can vary the type of spices used to make different flavors of burgers.
The same burger can be made using any other cooked beans or chickpeas etc.
Leftover bean patty dough can be refrigerated for a couple of days to make fresh burgers whenever you like.
You can just enjoy the potato-bean patties or cutlets with some ketchup as a snack too!
