I used the frozen veggie burgers instead of cutlets as i don't see much difference between them except for some spices, which gets adjusted with the ingredients here ;)


Ingredients:
  • Frozen burgers - 2
  • Sev - 1/2 cup
  • Onion - 1, finely chopped
  • Peas - 3/4 cups
  • Tomato - 1, finely chopped
  • Ginger - 1 inch, shredded
  • Cumin - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Corriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - as required
  • Amchur powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Chat masala - a pinch
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Cilantro - 1 tbsp, chopped, to garnish
For Chutney:
  • Cilantro leaves - 1 cup chopped
  • Mint leaves - few
  • Tamarind pulp - 4 tbsp
  • Craisins - few
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Dried Red chilly - 1 ( if required)
For Papdi:
  • All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
  • Salt - as required
  • Ajwain seeds - few
  • Oil - for frying
How to make it:

For papdi:
Mix flour, ajwain and salt with enough water and knead into a soft dough. Roll in to a thin round shape and cut into small squares. Fry in oil until light brown and crispy.

For Chutney:
I used craisins instead of dates. Grind all the ingredients with 1/2 cup water.

For chat:
Thaw frozen veggie burgers and cook as per the package instruction. Keep aside. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, onions and ginger and fry until light brown. Add tomatoes and cook until soft. Add turmeric powder, corriander powder, salt, chilli powder and garam masala and cook until raw smell disappears. Add 1 cup water and cooked peas and cook until it gets little thick.
Cut the burgers into 2 or 3 pieces. On a plate, place the burger pieces. Add papdi and pour one or two ladles of the prepared peas masala. Pour the chutney and tomato ketchup. Sprinkle some chat powder, amchur powder and sev on top and garnish with cilantro leaves. Prepare this just before eating to enjoy the crispiness of papdi and the softness of burger at the same time. Hmmmm...
