Vegtable Burger - Cooking Light

It was one of those days when I didn't know what to cook. and then I glanced through the latest issue of Cooking Light. The India inspired Cooking Light menu by Mr. Suvir Saran definitely excited me. I have immensely enjoyed his book "Indian Home Cooking". So decided that's what is for the dinner tonight - Veggie Burgers by Suvir Saran, Cooking Light style.

My Modifications
1. I added grated cabbage instead of carrots, since I didn't have carrots in the fridge.
2. I used Panko bread crumbs.
3. I used just one small potato since I didn't have more than that. (Yeah, it was one of those days, when I had to do the weekly grocery shopping!)
4. I didn't refrigerate the burgers before frying. I just used them immediately.
5. I also added some mint in the food-processor. It gave a nice flavor. Reason - just because!!:-)
