Blogging Marathon# 33: Week 1/ Day 3 Theme: Combo Dishes - Tikkis/ Burgers Dish: Adzuki Beans & Brown Rice Burger with Sweet Potato Fries It has been unseasonally warm for the past couple of days and we are totally enjoying this weather. I took my mom, my almost 3 year old niece and my 1 year old to New York city (NYC) yesterday. We live about 20 minutes away from the city, but never go there to actually see places. I usually go there on business, either for a meeting or a seminar, never as a tourist. I always wanted...


810 burgers

Total time

75 minutes




  • 1 cup Adzuki beans (/ Red Chori)
  • 1 cup brown rice (- (I used brown basmati))
  • 1 onion (- small, chopped)
  • 1 pepper (- small, chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (- minced)
  • Ritz Cracker (flakes)
  • 1 tsp chili powder (Red (or to taste))
  • 1 tsp Masala (Kitchen King (Can be substituted with Garam or Curry powder))
  • 2 tsps Methi (Kasoori - crumbled)
  • 1 ~ 1½ cups Bread (Crumbs (I used wholewheat bread crumbs))
  • 1 flax egg ((1 tbsp flaxseed meal whisked in 3tbsp water or use 1 egg))
  • 2 ~ 3 tbsp Flour
  • to taste Salt


  1. Wash, rinse and soak adzuki beans for at least 4~6hours. Cook the beans and rice separately until tender. I pressure cooked them separately, beans for 5 whistles and rice for 3 whistles.
  2. Drain the excess water and let them cool for a little bit.
  3. In the meantime, heat 2tsp oil in a saute pan and cook until translucent about 3~4minutes. Next add garlic clove and cook for 1 minute. Next add the chopped peppers and cook until tender, about 6~8 minutes. Season with salt, chili powder, kitchen king masala & kasoori methi. Mix well and turn off the heat. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  4. Combine the beans, rice and the onion mixture in the food processor. Process until the mixture comes together.
  5. Remove it into a bowl and add bread crumbs, flax egg, flour and form a smooth dough that doesn't stick to hands.
  6. Take ¼cup of mixture and form into patties. Place some breadcrumbs in a plate and roll the patties in the breadcrumbs on both sides. At this point, burgers can be made right away or can be frozen for later.
  7. Heat 1tbsp oil in a saute/ grill pan. Cook the burgers on medium-low flame until golden on both sides and cooked through, about 3 minutes on both sides.
  8. Serve on sandwich buns with the choice of toppings.
