- Once cooled down, transfer to a large bowl along with the remaining ingredients (except chickpea, flour, and salt).
- Mix and mash everything using hands or a handheld potato masher.
- Add chickpea flour and salt and give it a good mix. The mixture should be little bit like play dough. Add a little more chickpeas flour, if required.
- Divide it into equal portions, make burger patties and keep them in the fridge for 10 min to firm up.
Mr India Sauce
- Transfer all the above ingredients to a small bowl and mix well . (Start with 1 Tbsp water and add more if needed).
- Keep it in the fridge.
Assemble the Burger
- Heat up a non-stick frying and spray it with oil.
- On medium-high heat, fry the patties of 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and slightly crispy.
- To assemble, layer some sauce at the bottom half of a burger bun, place a patty on top, spread another layer of sauce, another patty, more sauce and then close the burger.**
- Serve with hot potato chips or wedges.
Notes: *If using frozen peas, place them in hot water for few minutes. Drain and pat dry them before using.
**Do a single stack burger if you prefer.

My name is Tully, the creator of @tullyzkitchen. I turned vegan in 2017 after watching the documentary 'What The Health' and ironically my decision was not for health at all. It was compassion for animals. At the time my partner and I chose to go vegan, the challenge was to bridge a gap between our lifestyle choices when we visited family and friends. All of a sudden, we were the couple with a bread roll and plain pasta sitting at the end of the table.
