This recipe was done from scratch . Baked the

bun the previous night and made this for

breakfast .Protein packed, with the ingredients

I had at home prepared a lovely breakfast!

INGREDIENTS

For the bun

2-3 cups flour

1 heaped tsp yeast

1 egg

2 tblsp milk powder / warm milk

1 tblsp sugar

1 tsp salt

3 tblsp butter

Warm water to bind the dough +prove yeast

Egg yolk mixed with 1 tsp milk ( for pre-bake

wash)

Few sesame seeds

METHOD

Add the yeast,sugar, 1/2 cup warm water,and a

handful of flour . Mix and allow to prove till

foamy.

Next mix in the rest of the ingredients and

knead to a soft dough ( not sticky).

Allow to rise double in size.

Divide into portions ( roughly 5-6).

Make shapes and place on a greased tray.

Allow to rise for 10-15 minutes , brush the tops

with milk and egg.

Sprinkle sesame seeds and bake in a 200C with

oven for 20-25 minutes.

Allow to cool and cut two layers.

You can smear the sides of the bread of the

bread with cheese or butter .

Bun could be toasted with butter before

assembling

For the patty

INGREDIENTS

1 cup soaked rajma / kidney beans

7-8 dry red chillies

1 tblsp coriander -cummin mixed powder

3-4 cloves of garlic

Few basil leaves ( optional)

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

Salt to taste

1 tblsp lime juice

1/4 tsp mixed spice powder/ garam masala

Butter/ oil for frying

METHOD

Wash the pre-soaked beans and grind in a

mixer with the garlic,chillies, to a coarse paste

Add the rest of the ingredients and bind to

make patties.

Grill with butter or oil till golden brown. I used

my pancake griddle to get uniform shapes.

Set aside.

To Garnish

Onions

Cut one onion into rings and mix in a little

lime and salt and set aside

Tomato

Cut slices and sprinkle light pepper

Avocado

Scoop out flesh from the avacado and add cut .

Some cilantro or parsley or if you are lucky to

get salad or lettuce.

Tomato and chillie sauce

If you have only tomato sauce you could mix a

little chilli powder to it and use.

Another option – You could mix ginger pickle

and tomato sauce.

Adding vegetables is your option- cucumber ,

gherkins,zucchini,boiled/ steamed broccoli…..

To assemble

You could toast the bread with butter before

you start.This gives added flavour.

Smear the tomato sauce on the bottom layer

and place the patty

Next layer you could smear with cheese or add

cheese slice and the prepared vegetables.

You could add egg if you prefer while serving .

I cut skewers and secured the bun .I think

skewers are safer then toothpicks when you

serve kids.

If you are not using avocado, you can make

sauces like cheese,hollandaise,or home made

Mayonnaise….!
