Aloo Mutter(Potato Dry peas) Burger with leftover curry

Wondering what kind of burger this is? This burger was born in my kitchen entirely using leftovers. I had some aloo mutter kurma and some cooked brown rice leftover. Hence I combined both of them to make these yummy Indianized burgers.

Cooking lunch for myself is a tedious task. I am so lazy to cook up a complete meal for myself. Hence I try to have leftovers from the previous night's dinner. At times having the same meal over again seems boring. So I try to use the same stuff and create a new meal for my lunch. This burger was born as a result. You can even freeze the patties in ziploc bags and store them for future use.

All I did was mash the brown rice and the aloo mutter kurma together along with some powdered oats and some bread crumbs to form patties and cooked them in a tawa and made burgers using whole wheat buns, a few tomato slices, a cheese slice and some lettuce. The aloo mutter kurma had all the spices needed. All the vegetables and rice are already cooked. Hence it takes very less time to make and assemble this burger.

This is no specific recipe. You can use any leftover curry which has some legumes, potatoes and vegetables to make this burger.

To make two burger patties, I used:
Aloo mutter kurma - 1 cup
Cooked brown rice - 1/2 cup
Powdered oats - 2 tablespoons (Just powder about 1/4 cup using a blender)
Bread crumbs - 1/4 cup (I used homemade bradcrumbs)
Salt to taste

Combine the kurma and the cooked brown rice together in a bowl. Mash it well into a coarse paste using a potato masher. In case you want a smooth consistency, you can either pressure cook the rice and kurma together for one whistle or pulse them together quickly for a few seconds in a blender before mashing them.

Add the powdered oats, bread crumbs and salt to taste.

Form patties of about 3 inches in diameter.

Heat a pan and cook the patties for about 2 minutes on each side drizzling some oil if needed. Cook until the patty turns brown on both sides.

Serve warm on a burger bun along with your favorite toppings. I used lettuce, tomato slices and cheese.
