Vegan Madras Fusion Burger with Kumara Fries


Burger Patties

  • 300g cooked quinoa
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Kavita's Kitchen curry paste (any flavour)
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 200g kumara, cubed and cooked
  • 3 tbsp tamari
  • 3/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked pepper
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast

Extra Ingredients

  • Burger buns
  • Vegan mayonnaise
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Red onion
  • Mango chutney

Kumara Fries

  • 2 large kumara, chopped into fries. Drizzle olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Kavita's Kitchen curry paste
  • Salt & pepper 


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celscius.
Drizzle your kumara fries with oil and place evenly on a lined baking tray. Brush each fry with some of Kavita's Kitchen curry paste then season with salt & pepper. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until crispy. Take out halfway and turn each fry over then place back in the oven for the other half.
Meanwhile, add all burger patty ingredients to a food processor except the flour and pulse a few times. You don't want to make a puree, you just want everything to break down slightly so it's easier to mix. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the chickpea flour.
Heat a large pan with oil. Shape your patties to your preferred size then fry in the pan on a medium heat until golden brown on each side.
Assemble your burger. Spread the bottom burger bun with mayonnaise. Add lettuce, then your homemade burger patty, mango chutney, tomato and onion.
