Beetroot and paneer burgers
This tasty burger is reminiscent of the potato pavs we ate on holiday in India. A pav is a super soft eggless roll, not dissimilar to a dinner roll, and commonly found in India.
- 8 dinner rolls or burger buns, split and toasted
- brinjal chutney
To make the burgers, add the beetroot, ginger and chilli to a dry pan over a medium heat. Fry until most of the excess liquid has evaporated, then drain in a sieve and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients, except for the oil, and mix well. Set aside to cool.
Once cool enough to handle, shape the mixture into 8 small patties. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side, until a nice crust has formed.
Serve the burgers in the buns, with the riata and chutney, if using.
