Adai Burgers with Vegan Soya Pattice ( Healthy Breakfast Recipe )

April was a very hectic month for me as I spent close to three weeks travelling and taking care of guests. Needless to say my workout routine went for a toss. But I have been staying true to my diet chart ( the mental one ofcourse ) with very few exceptions. Now that things have finally settled down, I am putting in a bit of extra effect to make up for the exercise that I skipped during the past weeks. And to make it more effective, I have made a few simple (but minor) changes in my meals. 
Less of carbs and more of protein is one. It is actually simpler than it looks (do check out my Instagram @swetabiswal to find out how I manage it !!). The other one is more important given that one tends to feel drained out during the summers. Lighter and more frequent meals keep one feeling energetic throughout the day and ensure that the metabolism does not slow down.
So, when Plattershare and FarmzToFamiliez came up with this #breakfastmarathon as part of 
Belly Nirvana, it got me all excited. Out of the many 'Ready to Prepare' variants that were delivered at my doorstep, one was a Multi-dal (Adai) batter. For those who are unaware, Adai is a kind of dosa where the proportion of lentils is higher as compared to rice. Hence, these are higher in protein and make for a more filling breakfast.
I have transformed the high protein adai batter into delicious burger buns and a mildly spiced soya (made from soya chunks) pattice completes it . Some tomato slices, onions, lettuce and a dash of pungent mustrad sauce adds to the feeling of Nirvana !

Read on for the recipe - 

Preparation Time - 30 mins

Ingredients - 
  • 2 cups FarmztoFamiliez Adai (Multi-Dal) batter
  • 1 cup soya chunks
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tsp chopped mint leaves
  • 1 large onion ( sliced into long pieces )
  • 1 small boiled potato (or boiled raw banana)
  • salt to taste

For assembling the burger - 

  • 2 tomatoes ( cut into thin round slices )
  • few lettuce leaves
  • 2 tsp mustard sauce
  • onion rings 

Preparation - Mix a little salt in the adai batter and keep it aside.

Cooking - Cook the soya chunks and squeeze out all water from them. Blend into a paste in a mixer jar along with the red chili powder, garam masala, ginger garlic paste, boiled potato, mint leaves, coriander leaves and salt.

Divide the soya mixture into 4 equal portions. Shape each one into a disc.

Heat a large tawa or skillet. Pour small amounts of adai batter to make the buns. Drizzle a little oil on the sides . Once it turns a light brown, flip over and cook on the other side as well.

The soya pattice can be cooked simultaneously. Once it is a little firm and brown on one side, press the onion slices on the uncooked side before flipping over. Let it brown on the other side as well.

Remove the adai buns and pattice from the tawa.

Assemble the burger by placing a soya pattice over a adai bun. Top with tomato slices, lettuce leaves, raw onions and a dash of mustard sauce. Close with another bun.

Serve immediately. Enjoy !!
