I remember eating this Aloo tikki burger at Mc Donalds in India for the very first time. And over the years I started making my own version at home . Needless to say way better than store bought and you are sure to save $$ . I am not kidding , try it for yourself and let me know.

So what is amazing about Carve Your Craving burger’s ?

Skip deep-frying ,the patties here are pan-fried and equally delicious.

Instead of keeping it all potatoes , I have added some veggies to it for extra nutrition and moistness kissed with warm Indian spices .

Instead of corn flour slurry , I have brushed flaxseed meal paste on each side of the patty (one more way to add flax in your diet J ) and then coated them in a mixture of panko bread crumbs and sesame seeds for a crispy exterior .

Look at the notes section for possible substitutions .

These patties taste amazing on their own . So if you wish to ditch the bread , just serve them as tikkis with a side of salad and this awesome dip.

I have use this 3 ingredient killer vegan burger sauce on my burger.

You can easily increase or decrease the recipe as per your requirement .

Make ahead of time and freezing options mentioned above.

Use zucchini instead of carrots and it's still delicious.

Instead of flax meal slurry you can use cornflour plus all purpose flour slurry.

Use store bought or homemade dry roasted bread crumbs for amazing crunch .

Skip sesame seeds if unavailable.

Use spices according to your spice level.

These burgers are 4 on 5 spice level. 5 being hottest.

Use herbs of your choice, mint goes well instead of cilantro.

Add 1-2 teaspoon cornflour if the mixture doesn't bind.

If catering to a large crowd , assemble the burger bread and tikkis warm in the oven at 200 deg F / 100 deg C for 1 hour. Assemble veggies and sauce just before serving .
