For the bhaji burger patties

  • 1 medium sweet potato coarsely grated
  • 2 small carrots coarsely grated
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1 green chilli chopped into rings
  • 1 bunch (1 cup) fresh coriander chopped
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp hot chilli powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 75 grams (½ cup) gram flour
  • 2 tbsp water use as much as needed to bind the mixture
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for frying

To assemble the burger

  • 6 burger buns
  • 3 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 6 tbsp mango sauce
  • 1 head lettuce shredded
  • 2 poppadoms crushed
  • 1 fresh red chilli sliced
  • extra coriander leaves


  • Preheat the oven to 180c (360f).

To make the bhaji burger patties

  • In a large bowl mix all of the prepared ingredients together (except for the oil). Add the gram flour, and water to bind it. If necessary, add more water. Divide the mixture into 6, and using your hands shape round burger patties. The patties should be around 1 inch (3 cm) thick.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan, and brown the patties on each side until they're golden and crispy.
  • Pop on a baking tray, and bake for 10 minutes so they are cooked through in the middle.

To assemble the burgers

  • Spread a little bit of vegan mayo over the base, then sprinkle with crushed poppadoms and let the burger patty sit on top.
  • Add a generous amount of mango sauce, and top with shredded lettuce leaves, fresh coriander leaves and red chilli. Cover with the bun and enjoy!
