Potato Burger


After the yummy paneer burger, I have a more classic version today which is a vegetarian’s go-to option – Potato Burger or as McD calls it here Aloo Tikki Burger. I have made the patty for this one countless times but never as a burger style. Usually we make it as aloo tikki and have it with chutney or ketchup as an evening snack. I figured I could put this into a bun and make it a delicious burger with some mayonnaise and cheese.

I am no fan of lettuce and I so I have avoided it in my recipes but you can add it if you like. I am probably one of the few people who likes to eat capsicum raw. So, for some green, I have included a slice of capsicum in this burger instead of an onion. If you leave it out, I will totally understand. This patty recipe is from my mom and a family favorite. So here goes –

Makes 2 burgers

Potatoes, large, boiled                            2

Bread slices                                                2

Chilly powder                                             1/2 -1 tsp

Garam masala                                            1/2 tsp

Coriander leaves, finely chopped        2-3 tsp


Oil for shallow frying

Burger buns                                                2

Mayonnaise                                                2 tbsp

Tomato slices                                             2-3

Capsicum slices                                         2

Cheese slices                                              2



  • Peel the potatoes and mash them to ensure no lumps are left
  • Take some water in a plate and soak the bread slices in the water, one by one
  • Squeeze out the water and add the bread slices to the mashed potatoes and mix well
  • Add the chilly powder, coriander leaves, garam masala and salt and mix well to form a patty dough
  • Divide the dough into two and shape each part into a patty the size of your palm
  • Heat some oil in a pan
  • Place the patties on the oil and fry them till both sides are golden brown
  • Remove from the pan and set aside
  • Cut the burger buns horizontally into two and toast them lightly, if you like
  • Apply some mayonnaise on the lower half of the bun and place the patty over it
  • Top the patty with tomato and capsicum slices and place a cheese slice on top
  • Cover the cheese slice with the top half of the bun
  • Serve with ketchup
  • Enjoy!
