Add all these ingredients and blend them together and adjust the salt and seasonings.
Add a little water if necessary while blending..The blended mixture should hold together to form patties.If it is too wet and do not hold together, add a little more flour..
Divide into equal sized balls and press them slightly to form patties of about quarter inch thick..
Refridgerate for about half an hour so that it becomes firm..
It can be cooked shallow frying, deep-frying or baking them..
If baked it should be brushed with oil..Otherwise it might dry off..They should be cooked until they turn golden brown in colour..
I baked them and topped the patties with tomato, onions, mustard sauce, jalapeno pickles and lettuce..Place these between burger buns and enjoy!
