Soya Kheema Burgers for Blog Hop

I had a packet of Dry Soya Kheema in my cupboard from quiet a long time. I wasn't sure how to use Soya Kheema. I was searching for a Soya Kheema cutlet recipe to use it up. Al l the recipes I found used Soya

When Radhika paired me with Vaishali for this month's Blog Hop and I opened her blog, the Soya Kebab was on the first page. And it was using Soya Mince. Coincidence did you say??? Too much of it... So unlike other Blog Hops, there was no thinking twice as to which dish I would be making.

Tikkis in the pan
That said, it would've been tough to decide what to make from her blog if I hadn't been looking for this recipe for so long. All her recipes are drool worthy. Her crafts are very innovative and pretty. A special mention to her Floating Rangolis. I definitely want to try them for the next Diwali if I get a chance.

Another special mention has to go to her kitchen. So neat and so well organised. Vaishali, you've inspired me. If and when I move back to India and get to design my kitchen, I might use some of your ideas. Absolutely loved the practicality of it.

Coming to the recipe, I didn't use paneer or green chilli paste in it. I've also adjusted the spice measurements according to our taste. As you can see, I've assembled it in a different way as well.

Here's my version of it:

Makes: 3 burgers


For Tikkis
1 cup - dry Soya Mince
1 - big Potato - boiled, peeled and mashed
1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
1 tsp Kasoori Methi - crushed between the palms
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
1/4 tsp Chat Masala
1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
1 tbsp Bread Crumbs
Salt to Taste
2 - 3 tbsp Oil (to shallow fry)

To Assemble
3 burger buns - cut in half - I used whole wheat
Tomato Ketchup / Hot Sauce
3 Cheese Slices (Vegans can avoid this)
1 Red Onion - chopped


For Tikkis
  1. Place the Soya Kheema in a bowl and pour boiling water over it till its fully immersed.
  2. Leave aside for 10 mins
  3. In the mean time, add the mashed potato and the rest of the ingredients (except Oil) under "For Tikkis" to a bowl.
  4. Once the soya is cold enough to handle, squeeze the water out of the mince and add it to the potato and mix well.
  5. Make tikkis of desired size and keep aside.
  6. Heat a pan, add oil and shallow fry the tikkis.
  7. Once done, start assembling the burger.
To Assemble
  1. Apply Tomato Ketchup / Hot Sauce on both sides (insides) of the burger buns.
  2. Spread about a table spoon of chopped onion on the base of the burger bun.
  3. Place the tikki on the Onions.
  4. Place the Cheese slice on the tikki.
  5. Close the burger and enjoy.
