Want a burger that doesn’t fall apart, has unique yummy flavors and its vegan?  Here you go, Chana Masala Burger.   What are the flavors and is it easy to make?

Primary Ingredients for Chana Masala Burger

  • It has warm spices of garam masala (oh yum!)
  • It is not only vegan, it does not fall apart
  • 3 main ingredients then spices
  • cook it
  • Eat,  ahhhh that was good!

I’ve also created a spicy chutney mayo to compliment the burger.  Come on, let’s get started!

Grab your ingredients,  you can use either use your Instant Pot to cook your chickpeas or from a can, if you use canned ones save the water as this is aquafaba and you can use it like eggs to bind ingredients and even make meringue!

A few pulses is all it takes

You can freeze the aquafaba (put it in ice cube trays first then save to a freezer bag) if you are not going to use it right away.

Using a food processor makes quick work on mixing and grinding up ingredients.

See? this is what it should look like

Form the burgers, or you can make smaller ones and use these as sliders, double yum! Use panko bread crumbs, this makes nice crust for the burgers before cooking them.

shape it and pat, pat some panko bread crumbs on it


Cook them in your favorite cast iron skillet and while they are sizzling a bit on each side, mix up the chutney.  For my chutney I used fresh mint, dried mint works great or even herbal mint tea. The mayo can be your favorite vegan mayo add in a bit of turmeric and ginger and you’re done!

Chutney… yum!

Chana Masala Burgers are great anytime of year and so quick to prepare, you can be eating these within 30 minutes.
