These burgers are a healthier version of the usual greasy ones you get at restaurants. Definitely fits the label 'homemade'.
Another easy recipe where we can just mix the ingredients to make the patty and then grill it on a skillet with very less oil. Once the patties are ready ...................its party time! Call in everyone to make their own burgers. ............the kids usually love to assemble their own burgers!

Another great way to sneak in veggies. I have used carrot here. But you can use beetroot, zucchini etc. Just remember while using zucchini or any veggie that has a high water content to squeeze out the excess water before adding it to the minced meat and make the patties immediately.
and also no one will know that there is oats in there!;)

for the chicken patty:
boneless chicken, ground - 500g 
ginger garlic paste - 2 tbsps
chilli powder - 2 tsps
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
onion powder - 1 tsp
carrot, grated - 1
egg, lightly beaten - 1
cooking oats - 3/4 cup
fresh coriander leaves, chopped - 2 tbsps
salt and pepper 

other ingredients:
burger buns - 6
lettuce/ rocket leaves
mozzarella or cheddar cheese slices -  6
tomatoes/ onions/jalepenos (optional)
mayonaise/tomato ketchup/ chilli sauce 

  • In a mixing bowl, add in all the ingredients under the list 'for the chicken patty'. mix well.
  • In a frying pan, heat some oil. ( I just used enough oil to cover the base of the pan)
  • Depending  on the size of the patty you require take the chicken and mould it into a disc shape using your hands.
  • Place it on the hot oil and cook for a few minutes on each side till cooked. It must be browned. Press down gently to help the insides cook.
  • Drain on a kitchen towel.  
To assemble:
  • Cut your burger buns through the middle.
  • On the base bun place whatever greens you are using.
  • then comes the hot patty and top it with the cheese.
  • On the top bun you can smear your mayo and other favourite sauces and then close the burger.
