This vegetable burger patty’s recipe is my late aunty’s recipe. It is a healthy recipe prepared simply with oats and vegetables. Even diet people can enjoy it without any guilt. Moreover, mayonnaise is not used as a sauce. But instead replaced it with greek yogurt with a dash of balsamic vinegar, sugar, and salt. It really tastes the same as mayonnaise. It has all elements like any burger available in eateries. It is good for children and better if you bake your own buns at home. Though I have used market ready burger buns, you can go for homemade burger buns by clicking on the below website link. It contains detailed recipes of other varieties of bread too.

Roast oats lightly for 2 minutes or until all heats up well and add them to the above mixture.
Put some salt, chili powder, garam masala and mix it with hand as if you are kneading dough. Initially, the mixture will not come together, but as vegetables start losing water it will come together.

Stir fry both patties using some oil and roast till it turns to a golden brown.
