Bean Burger with poha







Ingredients:
- 1 cup cooked black bean (Canned beans works fine too)
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 small bell pepper chopped (I used red color)
- 1 long carrot pealed and shredded
- 1 small green chili chopped finely
- 1 cup boiled corn (I used fresh corn)
- 1 tsp cumin and coriander powder
- 1 tsp chili powder (optional)
- 1 cup soaked thick poha
- 1/4 cup chopped coriander
- 2- 3 tsp oil or use cooking spray
- 1 tsp jeera
- salt to taste
Method:
1. In a pan add the oil and the jeera and once it starts to splutter add the onion and bellpeper and green chili. Cook till the become slightly soft. You do not want them to become mushy. Turn off the heat and add the shredded carrots and salt. Mix well and keep it aside to cool down.
2. Keep a handful of black bean aside and mash the rest with a potato masher.If using can drain and wash them well.
3. In a large bowl add the soft poha, black beans, cooked corn, cumin & coriander powder, chili powder and chopped coriander. Mix in the cooked vegetables. Mix them all well. Do a taste test and adjust salt accordingly.
4. Now form them into patties and refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes. If it is hard to form patties then add a piece of bread to it and it will soak all the water.
5. Remove it and in a flat griddle pour some oil. Cook each patties on both sides.
You will know it is done when it starts to turn brown.

Serve it in between buns with all your favorite burger topping. As this was a black bean burger I topped mine with avocado's. This is a healthy alternative to any store brought vegetarian burger.
