Ekadashi Potato Burgers
It's good to have a few handy recipes like these up your sleeve for Ekadashi days.
This one is for you Urmila Mata. :-)
This makes approx 16 mini burgers.
4 medium sized new potato's, washed, peeled, chopped, cooked and mashed (I added butter, salt, pepper and some water left from cooking)
3 cups cooked mushy quinoa
1/2 cup cooked celery (finely sliced)
1/2 cup cooked red bell pepper (optional)
1/2 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1/2 cup shredded vegetarian mozzarella
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp asafoetida (optional)
2 tsp sea salt or to taste
1 tsp ground blk pepper
1/2 tsp red chili flakes
Buckwheat flour for coating
Approx 3-4 TBSP oil for frying (I used sunflower)
Mix all ingredients and form into small thick patties. Coat lightly in buckwheat flour. Pan fry on an oiled pre-heated heavy cast iron griddle over medium low heat. Handle as little as possible to retain their shape. Turn patties over when the first side is dark golden brown and fry again til ready.
Serve hot topped with some fried jalopeno chilli's, a dash of ketchup and a good salad.
Gourmet Gopi features purely vegetarian and vegan recipes, some of which I've taught at our weekly University of Maryland cooking class. Apart from that you will find occasional ramblings, kitchen experiments, etc., and lots of thought provoking links. Come with an open mind and heart (and empty stomach, lol - credit to Bhaven for that quote!) :-D ys Gopi
Upcoming Events 2014
Our University of Maryland cooking classes became so popular, its more of a free meal for all than a cooking class because 200+ people simply don't fit into that small space!! :-) But our meals continue this Spring in the Co-op kitchen at 7pm. They run every week on Thursdays except during holidays and breaks.
Our Bhagavad-Gita Club continues on Tuesdays at 8pm in the Art & Sociology Building. Everyone is welcome. :-)
