The 'Hot Dayum' Quinwah Bhaji Burger


We realised we’ve been all about veggie bowls recently, so we’re taking it back to our roots today to show you how to build a pretty smokin’ indian bhaji burger, starring our Quinwah patty, paired with with tangy mango chutney, crackling poppadom crisps, shredded cucumber, aromatic bhajis and a spicy curry sauce!

The best thing about this burger is that it is SO easy to make. You can put this baby together in under 15 minutes.

Prep time: 5 minutes |  Cook time: 10 minutes 

  Total time: 15 minutes

(Serves: 1 person)



  • 1 Roots & Grains Quinwah patty

  • Olive oil

  • 1 burger bun

  • 2 mini onion or sweet potato bhajis

  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney (and more for dipping)

  • 1 ½ tablespoons curry sauce- we like madras for a bit of spice!

  • A quarter of a cucumber, grated or thinly sliced

  • 1 poppadom crumble broken into small-ish pieces, plus more if you want some to eat on the side!

  • A small handful of greens- we like rocket for its peppery flavour



So to make this burger you simply heat a little oil in a pan and fry the patty on each side for 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, spread the mango chutney evenly over each of the sides of the buns, and place a handful of rocket on the bottom half of the bun. Heat up the curry sauce in a small saucepan on a low heat until hot- it should only take 1 or 2 minutes.

Your patty should be ready now!

Next, place your patty on top of the rocket, followed by a lathering of curry sauce. Scatter your cucumber generously over the top of the sauce, followed by your bhajis, and finish off with your crumbled poppadom!

We like to eat this burger with a side of spicy paprika coated wedges, pickled red onion or simply some more poppadoms and mango chutney!

And there you have it- a takeaway in a bun!
