I had made a mixed vegetable brown rice for lunch one afternoon. And we were in no mood to eat the leftovers again for dinner.One reason is that we are still adapting to the taste of brown rice as we are not used to eating it regularly. The idea of making patties with them struck me. This idea is a kind of inspiration partly from Usha’s quinoa burger patty and partly from a rice burger made of white rice I had tasted at Mos burger long ago. They tasted really good. I made it form the leftovers , but the recipe given below shows you how to make it right from the scratch.
1tspOil- and about 1tbsp to drizzle on the sides while cooking
Bread Crumbs-To coat on the patty
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan. Add the ginger garlic paste followed by the mashed potatoes,grated carrots and peas.Add the red chilly powder, garam masala and salt. Saute for about 2-3 minutes.Now add the cooked brown rice and combine everything together.
Now pinch some portion from the above mixture. Shape them into a patty using your palm and fingers.Coat the patty by rolling them over the bread crumbs. Now place them on a hot pan/tava. Drizzle some oil on the sides. Cook till it turns golden brown. Turn them over and cook on the other side too. Serve them with some ketchup.
You can also place them between the burger buns along with some shredded lettuce and cheese and serve them with some ketchup as I did.
