Ingredients:

FOR CHICKEN PATTIES

  • 0.5 kg chicken mince meat
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbspn Cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbspn mustard sauce
  • 2 tbspns soy sauce
  • 3 tbspns hot sauce
  • 1 tspns garlic powder
  • 2 green chillies chopped fine
  • 1 tbspn red chilli flakes

FOR BURGER

  • 6 burger buns of your choice. I used the regular sesame seed roll
  • 6 slices of processed sandwich cheese
  • Some caramalised onions
  • 6 to 12 tomato slices
  • Fancy lettuce leaves
  • Butter

FOR SAUCE

  • ½ mayonnaise
  • 5 to 6 tbspns chilli garlic sauce/ 3 tbpns hot sauce and 1 tspn garlic powder

Method

  • Lets make the patties first. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix gently. The egg should be just fold in. This will make the patties soft and juicy. Keep aside for 15 minutes meanwhile we prepare the rest.
  • Apply some butter on both the sides of the bun or roll and grill it to give some color on the inside. I use griddle for this you can use any flat pan or stove grill.
  • Combine the ingredients for sauce and cut tomato and onion into slices.
  • Make 6 thick patties of the chicken mixture and grill them or shallow fry them for 5 mins per side. When you put the chicken patties put the onion as well. This will caramelise the onion while the patty is being cooked.
  • Before taking the patty off the grill place a slice of cheese on it and let it melt a little.
  • On grilled buns, put a dollop of the sauce on the crown (to part of the bun) and lettuce leaf on the heal (lower part of the bun).
  • Place the patty on the lettuce, cheese side facing up.
  • Put some grilled onion and tomato and cover with the crown
  • Serve hot with chips.

Ingredients:

  • 2 sesame buns (divided) (toasted or steamed) (TOASTED: on griddle/ hot grill or hot frying pan and STEAMED: in microwave for 25 secs per bun)
  • 8 dill cucumber slices (when you search for gherkins or pickles in a grocery store, you mostly get sweet spiced pickles, they are NOT the ones we are looking for. On the same shelf you can find dill cucumbers (whole cucumbers). That’s what we are looking for over here)
  • 1 brown onion sliced
  • Some ketchup
  • Some mustard sauce
  • 4 processed cheese slices (we don’t get orange colour cheese in Australia; maybe in US u can but there is no such difference in the taste of orange cheese and normal cheese. You can use Krafts or any other famous brand)
  • 250 gms beef mince (processed without any seasoning in a food processor)
  • Some salt and pepper

Procedure:

-For meat patties, process beef mince in food processor and then on a baking sheet/ parchment paper/ butter paper/ baking paper/ wax sheet put 2 balls of this meat and with oiled hands spread and make round patties a little bit bigger than your bun in diameter because mincemeat have tendency to shrink when cooked/ grilled.

-Freeze them for 30 minutes.

-Heat your non-stick grill and cook the meat. Season each side with salt and pepper and grill each side for 1 minute.

-Make sure your burger is dressed when the meat is ready to enjoy hot and fresh burger.

-Bun have two parts, the head part with sesame seed is the “crown” and the bottom base part is the “heal” . Now on the heal put one slice of cheese and on the crown drizzle some tomato ketchup and some mustard sauce, place some onion, 4 pickles (per burger) and then another slice of cheese.

-Now place the fresh hot meat patty rite from the grill onto your cheese slice on the heal and cover with the crown. So the sequence is burger heal (base), cheese slice, meat, cheese slice, onion, pickles, mustard, ketchup and top of the bun (crown).

-Repeat the same process with the other bun.

-Serve hot with chips.
