Brazilnuts and Kasoori Methi Burger with Mint Mayo

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

My kids were little fussy in their eating habits when they were little, most of the time they won't eat anything repeated on same day unless there are chocolates or biscuits. Especially during holidays for me it was nightmare..I have to make so many dishes or buy so many different ingredients and snacks. So years ago hubby came for help, he suggested me I should buy some frozen ready made meals, so whenever kids wants something different they can have it, just bake in the oven or grill them, food like Mexican bean burgers or Vegetable quarter pounders... I was at ease...

But, then eventually kids stopped having them too..Maybe they got fed up with the same taste . So I thought why don't I make them and create my own taste ? and it was successful, family loved it and kids were sooooooooo happy, what more do you want then? . My honest answer I've been making this type of burgers more well more than 10 years, and quite surprised that why didn't I post them on my blog? I make so many different type of vegetable, bean and nuts burger or cutlets...I used to make mixed nuts burger too, but sadly recently my daughter diagnosed with few nuts allergy,so I stopped making them with almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts and cashew nuts..but she can have we all are very happy to have this one.........also I added some kasoori methi just for variation and it was HIT without any doubt...........:-))

By the way I have to admit here that my kids never ever wanted a McDonald's or Burger King's meal........:-)) therefor I am more than happy to go for the extra steps in making these rather than buying !!
