Diwali preparations in zing… We did want to grab something Hatke & jhatpat.
Thats when I remembered I have a few cooked kindney beans leftover from after using the majority of them for Dal Makhani….Had planned to make Rajma masala first – quicker version , then ditched this idea.. and came up with the idea of bean burger.
Looking at my experimenting in the kitchen ,My H has also become particular in opting for healthier version and oil-less version wherever possible. So I tried Shallow fry & Baked Version for making the Bean Pattice. Flavour n Taste no less than the burger from the Burger king.


Cooked Kidney Beans / Rajma: 1 -1.5 cups
Chopped Onions: 1 nos small size
Grated Carrot: 1/2 cup
Green Peas: Handful
Ginger Garlic Paste: 1.5 tsp ( optional)
Green Chillies: 1 nos chopped finely
Salt: To taste
Dried Parsely: 1 tsp
Bread: 2 slice for making bread crumb
Corn Flour: 1-1.5 tsp
Water: 3-5 tsp


Preparation :

  •  Tear the bread into few big chunks and add it to a blender. Blender goess Grrrrrrrr at speed 1 for few seconds & bread crumbs ready.
  • Add the cooked kidney beans into the blender/ food processor and blend them until they roughly get mashed..
  • Mix Corn flour and Water and make a mixture.
  • Defrost the frozen Peas and add in warm water for few minutes.Take them out , mash them & keep it aside.


  • Heat 1 tsp of Oil in Pan , Add Ginger Garlic Paste , green chillies & saute it for 1-1.5 minutes.
  • Add chopped onions & pinch of salt and saute for 2 more minutes.
  • Add Grated Carrots , mashed peas & kidney beans . Saute them for 2 more minutes in low flame.
  • Sprinkle Parsley , ground pepper & required salt to the above mixtue , saute them for few more seconds and turn of the flame.
  • Make small pattice out of the mixture , apply corn flour paste all around , dip it in the bread crumbs mix and keep them aside. Repeat the process for the rest of the mixture.


Frying or Baking ???

Well I tried both the versions one after the other… Baked Version gave us a good satisfaction for Oil-Less food.

Method 1 : Shallow fry the pattice in few drops of oil , turning both sides until they turn slightly brown in color & the outer covering gets crispy. Pat dry in a kitchen towel to drain out all the excessive oil.

Method 2 : Pre heat the oven to 220 C . Bake the pattice placing them on a non stick tin ,for roughy 10 – 12 minutes or until they slighly turn. Make sure to turn the pattice in the middle of the process.


For this we require

Dinner Rolls : 2
Little Gem Lettuce
Tomato Slices
Cheese Slices ( Optional )
Mayonnaise ( Optional)



Cut open the Dinner Rolls into 2 , place the Cheese Slice .Over it Place lettuce , then  the tomato slices , Add a Dab of Mayonnaise ,finally place the Bean Pattice ,Close the burger with the other half of the dinner roll & gently press it.
Bean Burger is ready to be served wit Tomato Ketchup & lovely Orange juice.
